More Propaganda Balloons Flown over to North Korea

D-Bo , March 9, 2015, 11:55 a.m.

A defectors group plans to float more balloons carrying propaganda leaflets across the border around March 26, the fifth anniversary of the North's sinking of the Navy corvette Cheonan, a spokesman said Saturday.

"We're going to float the balloons in collaboration with other civic groups," activist leader Park Sang-hak said.  No decision has been made whether the U.S. Human Rights Foundation, which planned to disseminate propaganda leaflets using drones, will participate, he added.

The North Korean propaganda site Uriminzokkiri threatened to "immediately fire aimed shots" at anyone floating the leaflets. "This is not an empty threat."
