South Korean border province will ban activists sending leaflets to the North

Activist groups insist they will defy the new rules, however

A South Korean province bordering North Korea on Friday said it would "mobilize all administrative power" to ban and punish activists working to send anti-regime leaflets to the North.

In a move that comes amid growing efforts by Seoul to crack down on the launches -- which Pyongyang has blamed for worsening inter-Korean relations -- Gyeonggi province said it was designating several border areas as "danger zones."
