North Korea launches barrage of balloons toward South for second straight day

Launch of suspected ‘filth balloons’ follows Seoul’s decision to resume loudspeaker broadcasts near inter-Korean border

North Korea launched over 300 “filth balloons” for the second straight day on Sunday, South Korea’s military has announced, hours after Seoul resumed long-suspended propaganda broadcasts near the inter-Korean border.

The ROK’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said in a press release late on Sunday that the balloons were moving from the northern part of Gyeonggi Province toward the east.
