20,000 protest Bush arrival in Seoul

S. Koreans fire water cannons at Bush protesters

By PAUL ALEXANDER, Associated Press Writer2 hours, 1 minute ago

Police fired water cannons at thousands of protesters Tuesday as President Bush got a volatile reception in South Korea at the start of his three-nation Asian trip.

Bush will meet Wednesday with President Lee Myung-bak for the third time since the conservative, pro-American leader took office in February.

Some 18,300 police were on high alert with riot gear and bomb-sniffing dogs to maintain order during Bush's brief visit, the National Police Agency said.
