South Korea opened a second investigation in days into a report that the U.S. military dumped toxic chemicals near the capital decades ago, Reuters reports. Experts have been sent to the former U.S. base in Bucheon, west of Seoul, to check out the claims after South Korean media reported that a U.S. veteran had said "hundreds of gallons" of chemicals were buried there between 1963 and 1964. The accusations could rekindle anti-American sentiment in the country, which saw big protests against the import of U.S. beef in 2008.
