South Korean activists launched tens of thousands of anti-Pyongyang leaflets into North Korea Saturday, amid heightened tensions on the divided peninsula, using a propaganda tool that usually sparks threats of reprisals.Defector-turned-activist Park Sang-Hak and his colleagues released 50,000 leaflets tied to three large balloons from an empty field near Paju City close to the border with North Korea, marking the sixth anniversary of the sinking of a South Korean warship with the loss of 46 sailors.North Korea has responded by dropping its own leaflets over the border, attacking South Korean President Park Geun-Hye and returning to psychological warfare methods used in the 1950s and 1960s.
