South Korea activists to launch anti-North leaflets
SEOUL (AFP) - South Korean activists and North Korean defectors plan to launch anti-Pyongyang leaflets across the border on Friday - a move guaranteed to infuriate the North which has threatened to shell such events in the past.
Organisers said 60 people would take part in the launch - using helium balloons - to protest Pyongyang's decision to postpone a scheduled reunion for families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War.
"We will let our compatriots in the North know about the inhumane action of the North that blocked the reunion," the organisers said in a statement on Wednesday.
The balloons will carry tens of thousands of leaflets, urging North Koreans to rise up against the ruling Kim dynasty.
