SEOUL: Six South Korean youths were taken into police custody on Monday after staging a protest performance over Japan’s export restrictions inside the Japanese Consulate in central Busan, police said.

Monday’s arrests came amid growing anti-Japanese sentiments in South Korea as the two countries are locked in trade and diplomatic disputes.

Last Friday, a 78-year-old South Korean man died after setting himself on fire near the Japanese Embassy in Seoul.

Police say they were trying to find why the six people entered the Japanese consulate building in the southeastern city of Busan.

Yonhap news agency says they were trying to hold a placard and shout slogans criticizing Japan’s recent decision to tighten its export controls of some high-tech materials.
