개천절 서울 곳곳서 차량시위…광화문광장 폐쇄

Police were out in force in central Seoul today, completely blocking off Gwanghwamun Square, to stop any illegal rallies from taking place.
Still, conservative groups pressed ahead with what they called "drive-thru" rallies... in their cars... to protest the government's policies.
A court gave approval to two such rallies... under strict conditions that they involve fewer than ten cars,... that each car have no more than one person... and that they keep the windows rolled up.
Police set up checkpoints at 90 locations to make sure the protesters adhere to those conditions and to the routes they said they would take.
