Thousands of South Koreans are marching in the capital to protest what they say are setbacks in personal freedoms and labor rights under conservative President Park Geun-hye.

 

A Seoul police official says about 14,000 people have taken part in the rally, which began at a square in front of City Hall.

 

The demonstrators are planning to march toward an area near a hospital where a 70-year-old protester remains in a coma after being injured during a large anti-government rally in Seoul on Nov. 14, when dozens were hurt in clashes with police.
