Hundreds of South Korean police were deployed near the border with North Korea today, before the proposed launch of propaganda leaflets by activists, following threats of violent retaliation from Pyongyang.

The deployment of more than 300 police came, after the activists vowed to push ahead with their political leaflet launch at a park in the border town of Paju, some 40 kilometres north of Seoul.

The activists plan to release balloons carrying around 40,000 leaflets criticising the North's government, across the heavily-militarised frontier.
