Pro N. Korea media launches personal attack on democracy balloon activist

After failed assassination attempt, pro-NK media outlet kicks off anti-defector series with profile on Park Sang Hak

Pro-North Korean news outlet Uriminzokkiri attacked North Korean defector and activist Park Sang Hak in a Thursday editorial titled, “Exposing the hideous identity of human waste (1)”.

The numbered editorial – which indicates the start of a series about high-profile North Korean defectors – launched a personal attack on Park, who chairs the Fighters for Free North Korea (FFNK), an activist group well-known for launching pro-democracy messages via helium balloon to the North.
