(LEAD) Police disperse protesters at Jeju's naval base construction site
JEJU ISLAND, South Korea, Sept. 2 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's military resumed construction of a naval base on this southern island on Friday as riot police dispersed a group of sit-in protesters who have been occupying the site despite an eviction order.

The Seogwipo Police Station mobilized about 600 riot police troops at around 5 a.m. to order nearly 100 residents and anti-base activists to leave the site in Gangjeong Village on the southern coast of the island.
