South Korean military drops leaflets about Egypt protests into North Korea, NK warns they'll launch attack if continued - 26th Feb 2011

South Korea's military has been dropping leaflets into North Korea about pro-democracy protests in Egypt, Libya and other Arab countries, Reuters reports from Seoul.

As part of a psychological campaign, the South Korean military also sent food, medicines and radios for residents in a bid to encourage North Koreans to think about change, - something official Seoul was quick to dismiss as “rumors”.

Mass-scale clashes between protesters and police and army troops were earlier reported from several North Korean cities. Source
