Assassination attempt of Taiwan President - Assassination attempt of Taiwan President
Mon, April 19 2004 | 10:23PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Voting is about to begin in Taiwan's presidential election, just hours after the president and vice-president escaped an assassination attempt. The leaders - shot as they campaigned for Saturday's poll - said both they and Taiwan's security were fine and urged people to vote. President Chen Shui-bian was shot in the stomach while Vice-President Annette Lu was hit in the knee. Both were taken to hospital but have since been allowed home to recuperate. No-one has been arrested in connection with the shooting, and no-one has admitted responsibility. News that the president had been shot while campaigning in his southern home town of Tainan prompted tearful outpourings of shock there and in the capital, Taipei, followed by jubilation when it became clear Mr Chen was not badly hurt. Officials confirmed Saturday's presidential election and a controversial referendum on defence would proceed as planned, though both main parties cancelled their final campaign rallies. An investigation task force has been established and a reward of $90,000 has been offered for information on whoever shot at the politicians as they stood in the back of an open-top car.
