South Korea has agreed to halt cross-border propaganda broadcasts as part of a deal with North Korea to defuse tension after recent confrontations.

Seoul started the broadcasts after a landmine injured two of its soldiers on the border earlier this month.

The South's lead negotiator said the move came after the North agreed to express "regret" over the incident.

The agreement came after marathon talks that began after an exchange of fire at the border last Thursday.
