S. Korea rejects US envoy attacker's denial he intended to kill

US ambassador to South Korea Mark Lippert (C) covers a wound to his face as he leaves the Sejong Cultural Institute in Seoul on March 5, 2015, after he was attacked by nationalist activist Kim Ki-JongSouth Korean police vowed Monday to press on with attempted murder charges against the man who injured US ambassador Mark Lippert in a knife attack, despite the assailant’s denial that he intended to kill. Doctors said Lippert, 42, was recovering well from Thursday’s assault by nationalist activist Kim Ki-Jong, which left the envoy requiring surgery to repair deep gashes to his face and hand. District police chief Yun Myeong-Seong said Kim, 55, had revealed under questioning that he had prepared two weapons for the attack — the knife and a razor which he didn’t use. Kim, who has a previous conviction for hurling a rock at the then Japanese ambassador in 2010, was formally charged with attempted murder on Friday.
