North Korean defectors vow more propaganda leaflets

South Korean activists, led by Choi Sung Young, say they plan to float about 100,000 leaflets into communist North Korea next week, despite threats from Pyongyang that to do so threatens a military confrontation.

The leaflets contain messages criticizing North leader Kim Jong Il, describing him as a murderous dictator and calling for an end to his rule.

Mr Choi said his group and its partner organization of former North Korean defectors, the Fighters for Free North Korea (FFNK), had another 200,000 leaflets ready to fly northward at a later date.

The FFNK released 10 large balloons loaded with 100,000 leaflets from a fishing boat near the border in the Yellow Sea on October 10.
