South Korean activists launch balloons to leaflet North Korea

South Korean activists floated balloons carrying tens of thousands of anti-Pyongyang leaflets into North Korea.

Pro-North Korean activists stage a rally to stop the sending of anti-North Korea leaflets across the border on the road in Paju, near the Demilitarized Zone, in South Korea on Monday, Oct. 22, 2012. North Korea's military warned last week that it would strike if South Korean activists carried through with their plan to fly balloons carrying the propaganda leaflets across the border. South Korea pledged to retaliate if it was attacked.  The placards translate as "Stop sending anti-North Korea leaflets." (AP Photo/Ahn Young-joon)
