S. Koreans launch balloons carrying anti-North leaflets
SEOUL (AFP) - South Korean activists launched balloons carrying leaflets critical of the North's ruling Kim family across their shared border on Sunday to coincide with the regime's 64th anniversary.
Some 10 activists including North Korean defectors in Seoul floated the 10 giant balloons carrying 200,000 small leaflets and 300 DVDs at the Imjingak park near the heavily-militarised border with the North.
"Rise up, our 20 million compatriots! Don't be fooled by the deception of Kim Jong Un!" read one leaflet, referring to the North's young new leader, who took over from his father Kim Jong Il after his death last December.
Jong Il himself took over from his own father and the North's founding president Kim Il-Sung after his death in 1994.
