North Korea fights back, broadcasts own propaganda at South
Competing broadcasts will mostly serve to drown one another out, military official says

North Korea will start broadcasting its own propaganda at the DMZ in the hopes of drowning out the South Korean broadcasts there, South Korea’s Kyunghyang Sinmun reported Monday.

The South Korean Ministry of Defense announced the resumption of propaganda broadcasting toward the DPRK at the beginning of last week in response to the DMZ mine incident, resulting in serious injuries of two ROK soldiers. As of Monday the DPRK was broadcasting its own propaganda at the South, for the first time in 11 years, near the East Sea to drown the South’s broadcasts out.
