South Korean activists send balloons with propaganda to North Korea

South Korean activists are sending thousands of pamphlets across the border to North Korea by balloon. The governments of both South and North Korea had warned them not to do so. Members of a group called Freedom Fighters for North Korea launched the balloons Monday from an island west of Seoul. Earlier in the day, South Korean police had blocked the group from releasing balloons. Then event organizer Park Sang-hak said the aim is to send letters containing what he called truth and fact to North Koreans. The activists are a group of defectors from North Korea. North Korea warned on Friday its military would carry out a "merciless strike" without warning if the leaflets were sent.
