S. Korea vows to prevent ‘The Interview’ DVD balloon launch


SEOUL: South Korea vowed on Friday to take steps preventing activists  from sending copies of Hollywood film “The Interview” into North Korea  next week, citing a “limit” to freedom of expression. Activists plan to launch some 10,000 copies of the film—a comedy about a fictional Central Intelligence Agency plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un whose release infuriated Pyongyang—as well as 500,000 propaganda leaflets by balloon across the heavily-militarized border on or around      March 26. Pyongyang has long condemned such balloon launches and threatened retaliation.
