Thousands pray for peace in downtown Seoul

SEOUL - Tens of thousands of Koreans rallied in downtown Seoul on Sunday, to pray for peace and to support the U.S. military presence in South Korea.

Put together by the General Association of Christian Organizations, the demonstration called for the United States to find a peaceful solution to the crisis surrounding North Korea's nuclear programs.

The protesters sang along to gospel music, waved U.S. and South Korean flags, and carried placards declaring, "Korea and U.S. are blood brothers."
