Anti-war activist Sheehan hugs the mother of village headman Kim Ji-tae during a news conference in Seoul
Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan (L), whose son Casey was killed during combat in Iraq in April 2004, hugs Hwang Pil-soon, the mother of village headman Kim Ji-tae, during a news conference in Seoul November 20, 2006. Kim is in jail for protesting against the expansion of a U.S. military base in Pyongtaek. A delegation of U.S. peace and social justice activists led by Sheehan arrived in Seoul on Sunday for a six-day visit to object to the expansion of Camp Humphrey, the U.S. military base in Pyongtaek, and to protest against a plan for a free trade agreement (FTA) between South Korea and the U.S. The words on the signs read, "Renegotiate for expansion of U.S. military base!" (L) and "Release village headman Kim Ji-tae!" REUTERS/Lee Jae-Won (SOUTH KOREA)
