U.S. Ambassador to South Korea Mark Lippert Attacked With Knife - NBC News

The U.S. ambassador to South Korea, Mark Lippert, was slashed in the face and arm by a knife-wielding man Thursday morning local time (late evening Wednesday ET) in Seoul, officials said.

The envoy was on his way to attend a morning lecture in central Seoul when the attack took place, according to the Yonhap news agency, which published a picture of Lippert bleeding.

Lippert suffered a four-inch-long, one-inch-deep gash down the right side of his face and another cut on his arm, a hospital official said. Lippert underwent a successful three-hour surgery Thursday morning and was in stable condition," Yonsei Severance Hospital chief Chung Nam-sik told reporters.

Now What? Another U.S. Ambassador attacked? There is just no respect for Americans around the world anymore. Why our president can't guard our ambassadors right? Or they just wanna see another Benghazi?
