A South Korean court issued an arrest warrant for a 67-year-old suspect, identified as Kim, who attacked Lee Jae-myung, chairman of the main opposition Democratic Party. The assailant stabbed Lee in the neck while posing as an autograph-seeker in Busan. Kim, with a history of extreme political views, was immediately detained. Although the motive remains unknown, the suspect claimed he acted alone with the intent to kill the politician. Lee underwent surgery for a sliced jugular vein and is recovering, though post-surgery complications are possible. The incident raised concerns about the safety of high-profile politicians, leading to calls for a speedy investigation and enhanced security measures.
