South Korea & Taiwan Flag Burning Controversy

(AFP) Nov. 20, 2010

SEOUL - SOUTH Korea's foreign ministry expressed concern to Taiwan on Saturday over the burning of its flag and boycotts of its products in a heated row over Taekwondo at the Asian Games, local media said.
Taiwanese fighter Yang Shu-chun was disqualified from the Games on Wednesday for wearing extra sensors in her socks, sparking fury in her home island, where irate fans have blamed South Korean judges for kicking her out. Taiwanese protesters have been burning South Korean flags on the streets of Taipei in reaction to this disqualification.
