S. Korea resumes anti-N. Korea broadcasts along their border

2016/01/08 12:01

SEOUL, Jan. 8 (Yonhap) -- South Korea restarted propaganda broadcasts Friday along its border with North Korea, two days after Pyongyang tested a nuclear bomb.

Military tensions are expected to escalate on the peninsula as the North is extremely sensitive to any outside criticism of its leadership and system.

The South's military carried out the psychological campaign using loudspeakers for weeks last year in retaliation for the North's land mine attack.

It was halted with the Aug. 25 inter-Korean deal.

At that time, Seoul said it would resume the broadcasts in case of "abnormal" situations.
