Defector-activist says he flew posters to North Korea denouncing Kim Yo Jong

Park Sang-hak also sent painkillers and vitamins in what he says was 4th cross-border balloon launch since July

Defector-activist Park Sang-hak says he launched another set of balloons carrying aid toward North Korea, sending masks and painkillers along with a huge poster slamming North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his powerful sister Kim Yo Jong.

The launch comes after an attacker, reportedly upset about Park’s repeated balloon launches across the inter-Korean border, assaulted the activist with a metal pipe at a protest last month, breaking his right arm.
