U.S. Ambassador Attacked With Razor Blade in South Korea

U.S. Ambassador to South Korea Mark Lippert got a scare in Seoul on Thursday morning (Korean time) when he was attacked by a man with a razor blade. Lippert’s injuries are reportedly not life-threatening, but did leave his face bloodied.

“According to South Korea’s YTN news channel, Lippert was about to deliver a speech at a breakfast being held at Sejong Hall in Seoul,” CNN reports. YTN reported the man screamed “South and North Korea should be reunified” while carrying out the attack.
