On a remote South Korean island, North Korean trash washes ashore

Bright and colorful DPRK food and drinks wrappers are easy to find on South Korean island

On the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong-do, just a stones-throw away from the contested Northern Limit Line (NLL) that separates the seas of the two Koreas, North Korean trash is slowly building up.

During an NK News visit to the island this week, over a dozen pieces of North Korean rubbish were found strewn out over a north-facing beach at the top of the island.
