Activists float leaflets into North Korea

Some 200 members of the North Korean defectors' group, Fighters for Free North Korea, and conservative South Korean organizations, sent 100,000 pamphlets attached to 10 helium balloons into North Korea on Thursday, the 62nd anniversary of the establishment of North Korea.

The leaflets condemn North Korea's three generations of hereditary rule. "Was 62 years of dictatorship not enough to oppress the people of North Korea?" the pamphlets read in part, ahead of a North Korean party congress that is expected to anoint leader Kim Jong-il's son as his heir.
