Taipei, Dec. 6 (CNA) Two female lawmakers with the opposition Kuomintang (KMT) were injured Friday during a protest at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) over the death of a diplomat posted in Japan last year.

The incident occurred when a group of between 10 and 20 KMT members, including lawmakers Lin Yi-hua (林奕華) and Chen Yu-jen (陳玉珍) and some city councilors, tried to enter the ministry building through its main entrance to meet MOFA chief Joseph Wu (吳釗燮).

They wanted Wu to give an explanation for the suicide last year of Su Chii-cherng (蘇啟誠), then director-general of the Osaka branch of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Japan, but were blocked from entering by security personnel.

Amid pushes and pulls, Lin and Chen were caught in the melee for more than an hour, causing Chen to faint and resulting in serious bruises to Lin.    [FULL  STORY]
