N. Korea drops propaganda leaflets attacking S. Korea's govt across their shared border for the first time in 12 years

SEOUL (AFP) - North Korea has dropped thousands of leaflets attacking South Korea's government across their shared border for the first time in 12 years, the South's defence ministry said on Thursday. South Korean soldiers collected 16,000 leaflets floated by the North across the heavily-fortified frontier over five days from July 21, the ministry said. The leaflets contain criticism of President Lee Myung Bak's administration and of its alleged plot to destroy a statue of the North's late leader, the ministry said. 'North Korea used balloons to send the leaflets, which were found scattered in border areas,' a ministry official told AFP.
