Propaganda balloons strike nerve in North Korea

North Korea will open fire across the tense land border if South Korea keeps sending anti-regime propaganda materials via balloons, state media said Sunday.

Says the Korean Central News Agency, the North's military will launch "direct, targeted firing attacks" towards border areas where the South's activists and military float balloons carrying anti-government leaflets and DVDs if the practice continues.
