Korean man killed in attack in Philippine capital
A South Korean man was killed Monday by four unidentified gunmen on a busy street in the Philippine capital, a police spokesman said, dpa reported.
The victim, identified as Cho Tae-Hwan, was driving a sports utility vehicle with two other South Koreans inside when a white van blocked their path at a crossing in Pasig City in metropolitan Manila, Senior Superintendent Agrimero Cruz said.
Four gunmen alighted from the van; immediately fired at the victim, who died instantaneously; and seized the victim's two companions, Cruz said.
The spokesman said the two seized South Koreans were released unharmed a few hours later.
Police investigators were still determining the motive behind the attack, Cruz said.
