Protesters and police clashed Monday in the southeastern city of Busan over the installation of a military radar.

Around 6 a.m., the Air Force began installing a Green Pine land-based radar on Mt. Jang.

Local authorities were not given advance notice of the operation, apparently to avoid a standoff with activists, who have raised concerns over potentially harmful effects from the radar's electromagnetic waves.

The move sparked anger among residents and led to scuffles with police trying to disperse crowds.

The Air Force the radar, used to detect and trace ballistic missiles, is essential in responding to missile threats and does not pose harm to the local community.
