Report: Korean police trod on Eucharist

Catholic World News - August 13, 2012

Father Bartholomew Mun Jung-hyun, who was celebrating Mass outside the proposed site of a controversial naval base in South Korea, was knocked down by police who then stepped on the Eucharist, according to a witness quoted by the Asian news agency UCA News.

While the Diocese of Cheju demanded an apology, the Jeju Provincial Police Agency denied that the priest was knocked down or that the Eucharist was desecrated.

“There was no violent force throwing Father Mun to the ground or stepping on the Eucharist,” the police agency said in a statement.
