• SKorea police block anti-North leaflet launch


    PAJU, South Korea: South Korean police on Friday blocked activists from launching anti-North Korea leaflets across the heavily fortified border, amid elevated military tensions on the divided peninsula. About 100 police officers formed human barriers to block vehicles carrying around 30 activists to the border town of Paju, from where they had planned to launch helium balloons carrying the leaflets into North Korea. The pamphlets criticized and mocked the North’s ruling Kim dynasty and condemned a landmine attack blamed on Pyongyang that maimed two members of a South Korean army border patrol earlier this month.
