(2nd LD) Interior minister likens collective police protest to military coup(ATTN: CHANGES headline, lead; UPDATES with more info throughout; ADDS photo)By Kim Han-joo SEOUL, July 25 (Yonhap) -- Interior Minister Lee Sang-min on Monday slammed police officers taking collective action against the envisioned establishment of a ministry bureau overseeing the law enforcement agency, even likening them to a coterie of elite military commanders behind a 1979 coup. The remark came two days after about 50 senior superintendents across the nation held a meeting Saturday to protest the envisioned establishment of a "police bureau," a move that they claim would compromise their political neutrality and accountability.
