Chinese leader Hu Jintao arrived in South Korea on Sunday for the World Nuclear Safety Summit that started on Monday.
Falun Gong practitioners took the opportunity to deliver a letter to Hu Jintao at the Chinese Embassy in Seoul, and in two other South Korean cities on Sunday. They are calling for an end to the persecution of the spiritual practice, and for key figures in the Chinese Communist Party to be brought to justice for their part in the brutal persecution.
So far, at least 3000 unnatural deaths have been documented as a result of the Chinese Communist Party's persecution of Falun Gong.
The former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin launched the persecution in 1999.
