A car loaded with highly flammable gas canisters in the boot rammed into the security gates of the US Embassy in Seoul just days before Donald Trump visits.

It appeared the car made a "sudden turn", according to police, and was deliberately driven into the embassy's metal gates, which are guarded by US Marines.

A cardboard box containing almost 30 butane gas canisters was found in the boot.

The alleged driver, a 40-year-old man, was arrested at the scene after the crash in South Korea's capital just before 6pm on Tuesday.

Police have not yet commented on a possible motive for the incident.
