Personal reflections on the Korail Eviction

Hundreds of houses destroyed, thousands of people walking about with frustration in their eyes, some are gathered in processions... house wares, broken furniture scattered on the ground along with pieces of broken bricks and tin sheets. Houses of 1000 families in Korail slum has been destroyed yesterday.
