North Korea has sent more than 150 balloons loaded with feces and garbage to South Korea, the South Korean military said on Wednesday (May 29, 2024). According to Seoul, this is a response to leaflets sent by activists, also with balloons, to North Korean territory.

The first balloons to arrive in South Korea were seen on Tuesday night (May 28) in Gyeongnam Province in the country's southeast. The army said plastic waste, batteries and feces were found.

Seoul attributed this action to Pyongyang. This is because the balloons were sent after North Korea's Deputy Defense Minister, Kim Kang Il, said his country would respond to the sending of anti-regime leaflets.
