Yeosu Expo breaks 100,000 mark in daily visitors

YEOSU, South Korea, May 27 (Yonhap) -- More than 100,000 people visited the World Expo under way in South Korea's Yeosu on Sunday for the first time since the event opened about two weeks ago, the organizing committee said.

   A three-day holiday through Buddha's Birthday Monday is believed to have led to the rise.

   The fair, which opened on May 12, has struggled with lower number of visitors than expected.

   The 93-day event is the first Paris-based Bureau of International Exhibitions approved event hosted by South Korea since the 1993 Daejeon Expo.
