North Korea has stepped up its rhetoric against Seoul, threatening that Imjingak, a park near the demilitarized zone, is within its striking range.
This comes after North Korean defectors in Seoul and U.S. human rights activists announced they would fly anti-Pyongyang propaganda leaflets across the border.
The North Korean military, through its state-run Korean Central News Agency, slammed the government here for purposely plotting the leaflet-dropping event.
However, police stopped protestors from proceeding with their plan so as not to stoke tensions after the North threatened to retaliate.
