South Korean activists have floated propaganda leaflets against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) early on Tuesday to denounce Pyongyang's nuclear and missile provocations.

The Fighters for a Free North Korea, a civic group composed mostly of DPRK defectors, said in an e-mailed statement that its eight members sent some 300,000 leaflets toward the DPRK from the western city of Gimpo near the border with the DPRK at about 6: 00 a.m. local time (2100 GMT Monday).

The anti-DPRK fliers were floated by large balloons to condemn the DPRK's nuclear and missile provocations.

Also contained in the giant balloons were 2,000 one-U.S. dollar bills, aimed to encourage DPRK people to pick up the fliers, as well as 300 booklets denouncing the DPRK's missile provocations, according to the statement.

Pyongyang had vehemently opposed the leafleting as it hurts inter-Korean relations, but Seoul had claimed it had no right to block the moves by civic group activists.

It marked the first time that such activists dispersed anti-DPRK leaflets under the new South Korean government of President Moon Jae-in who took office in May.
