A group of South Korean students were arrested Saturday when they broke into American ambassador Harry Harris’s Seoul residence.

According to Bloomberg, the students were part of a liberal university students’ group and were protesting President Trump’s push to get South Korea to pay more for U.S. military support.

The article goes on to state the following:

The U.S. and South Korea are scheduled to meet in Honolulu this coming week to discuss shared defense costs.

“The students broke into the compound in the centre of the capital by climbing over the wall, pictures they posted on Facebook showed,” The South China Morning Post reports. “One image showed a group standing on the veranda of a hanok – a traditional Korean house – holding up banners reading ‘Harris leave this land’, among others.”

According to the Post, South Korea’s foreign ministry “condemned” the demonstration in, saying “any harm or attack on foreign diplomatic missions cannot be justified under any circumstances.”
