...and some of them had bone fractures, Kim Jong-kyung, co-head of a group of villagers protesting the Thaad deployment, told Reuters. Kim said about 200 protesters, mostly residents in two towns near the battery site, rallied overnight and would remain near the location. “We will continue our fight and there’s still time for Thaad to be actually up and running so we will fight until equipment is withdrawn from the site and ask South Korea’s new government to reconsider the plan,” Kim told Reuters by telephone...(source: Guardian, 4.26/updated reports in Korean you'll get here, here, here, here and here

PS. A spokesman for the Central Committee of the Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist Youth League in a statement Sunday declared the will of the Korean youths to resolutely and mercilessly wipe out the U.S. imperialists and south Korean puppet warmongers.
Upon hearing the news that the U.S. imperialists and south Korean puppet group of traitors are making desperate efforts to hurt the dignity of the DPRK and bring down its socialist system while openly talking about "preemptive attack", five-million youth vanguard of the DPRK are hardening their will to wipe out the enemies with the surging rages at them, the statement said, and went on: The Paektusan large contingents of young people are now waiting for the final order of the headquarters of the revolution, keeping themselves fully combat-ready to mercilessly wipe out with five million nuclear bombs the group of devils who are trying to bring a nuclear disaster to the inviolable country.
The U.S. imperialists should know that the earth will break if invincible nuclear force and the five million large contingents of young people equipped with nuclear bombs vent their wrath.
If the enemies show a slight provocation, we youth vanguard, detached force of the Supreme Commander and unit of stalwart fighters for accomplishing the cause of the Juche revolution, will liberate south Korea at a go and wipe out all the strongholds of the empire of evils beyond the Pacific, like a charge of dynamite set off, like lightning and storm of Mt Paektu in the van of the confrontation with the U.S. and the sacred war for national reunification.
The world will clearly witness how the Paektusan large contingents of young people will annihilate all aggressors and provokers on the earth and display fireworks of the final victory. (source: KCNA, 4.23)
