North Korea warns South Korea over anti-Pyongayng leaflets

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea's military warned South Koreans on Saturday to stop floating leaflets over the border that criticize the isolated regime, threatening decisive action if the propaganda continues.

The military also claimed in a message to Seoul's military that South Koreans who cross the border into the North for joint projects were waging a psychological campaign to discredit Pyongyang.

The two Koreas agreed in 2004 to end decades of propaganda — carried in radio broadcasts or leaflets sent over their militarized border or blared on loudspeakers — as part of reconciliation on the divided peninsula.

Still, activists and some North Korean defectors living in the South continue to send balloons into the North with messages — and sometimes $1 bills — condemning North Korean leader Kim Jong Il and his communist regime.
