THAAD Opponents in Seongju Divided over Alternative Site Option

Residents opposing the planned deployment of THAAD in their town of Seongju are divided over the issue of finding an alternative site for the weapon system within the county.
 
The committee of opponents on Saturday held a meeting at the Seongju County council office on the matter.
 
Discussions, however, could not continue due to clashes between the hardliners calling to scrap the deployment decision and others open to the option of housing the battery at an alternative site.
 
Before the closed-door meeting began, some 20 Seongju residents occupied the hallway and called on the committee to suspend talks on an alternative site. 
 
The disagreements come after Defense Minister Han Min-koo earlier this week said the government would consider a third site for the planned THAAD deployment within the county if Seongju residents come up with a consensus.
