Footage of Belgian ambassador s wife slapping shopkeeper outrages South Koreans

Security camera footage showing the wife of the Belgian Ambassador to South Korea slapping a shopkeeper after being mistaken for a shoplifter has prompted an angry response on social media . Websites have been flooded with calls for Ambassador Peter Lescouhier and his wife Xiang Xueqiu to leave the country over the incident at a clothes shop in Seoul on April 9, which has sparked a police investigation. The video footage, released by the shopkeeper, shows Xiang pulling an employee around by the arm and hitting her on the back of her head. When the shopkeeper steps between the two to calm them down, Xiang slaps her in the face. The 63-year-old Xiang’s blow left the shopkeeper, 33, with a swollen face and a bloodshot eye.
