South Korea: Photos *updated*

July 21, 2010

See posts below for more information (and a few photos) about Secretary Clinton’s day thus far in South Korea.

UPDATE: Scroll down for lots of new photos below- I’ve been adding them throughout the day.

Here are some photos from her arrival, press briefing and trip to the DMZ. I’ll add more photos later.

Clinton and Gates paid a rare visit Wednesday to the heavily fortified border dividing the two Koreas, a symbolic trip four months after the deadly sinking of a South Korean warship blamed on the North.
