N. Korea sends propaganda leaflets to S. Korea

SEOUL, Jan. 19 (Yonhap) -- North Korea has sent leaflets criticizing South Korea, police said Tuesday, the latest move in its propaganda campaign.

Police retrieved some 30,000 to 50,000 leaflets in a valley near a park in Dobong district in northern Seoul.

The leaflets carried criticism of President Park Geun-hye, denouncing her as a warmonger, police said. It also urged the United States to stop its hostile policies against North Korea.

Later on that same day, another 2,000 leaflets were found in Mapo district in western Seoul.

Those leaflets also criticized Park and carried captured images of domestic and foreign media reporting North Korea's announcement on its nuke test earlier this month.

South Korea believes North Korea floated the leaflets in an apparent response to Seoul's recent resumption of anti-Pyongyang broadcasts along the heavily fortified border.

Last week, Park vowed to strengthen psychological warfare against North Korea, calling it "the surest and most effective" means.

South Korea resumed anti-Pyongyang broadcasts as part of its punishment against North Korea over its nuclear test earlier this month.
