South Korea to resume loudspeaker broadcasts over border in balloon row

# South Korea plans to resume propaganda broadcasts against North Korea for the first time in six years. This is in response to Pyongyang’s campaign of sending rubbish-filled balloons across the border. Over 300 North Korean balloons were detected over the weekend, with around 80 landing in the South carrying scrap paper and plastic sheets. Pyongyang considers the loudspeaker propaganda broadcasts an act of war and has in the past threatened to blow them up.
