Seoul , Apr.27 (ANI): The Olympic torch arrived Sunday in South Korea on the latest leg of its world tour, with demonstrators vowing to disrupt its run through the city that hosted the 1988 Summer Games.

The torch relay would begin from a park built for the Seoul Olympics and make a 24-kilometer-long journey to City Hall.

Organizers have refused to reveal the exact course because of concerns over disruptions.

Some 8,000-riot police were being deployed to guard the flame, along with some 100 officers with marathon-running experience to follow the torch in shifts.

Officials say they will arrest anyone who tries to interrupt the relay. (ANI)
