South Korea: fire at immigration detention center

Matt from Gusts Of Popular Feeling blogs the details of the fire accident in Yeosu during the weekend, which killed 9 foreigners (8 were Chinese). He criticised the Ministry of Justice's excuse for the poor condition in the immigration center: Any massive increase in the number of foreigners in detainment centers due to immigration violations has always been due to the Justice Ministry's decision to periodically arrest large numbers of people, so such an excuse for poor detainment conditions is pathetic.
