North Korea sends another 600 waste-filled balloons across the border

North Korea has released another 600 waste-filled balloons over the border, the South’s military said on Sunday. Staff in protective suits were seen collecting piles of rubbish containing everything from cigarette butts to bits of cardboard and plastic.

South Korea has called the latest provocation from its nuclear-armed neighbor “irrational” and “low class,” but unlike the spate of recent ballistic missile launches, the waste campaign violates U.N. sanctions against Kim Jong-il’s isolated regime u don’t.

Seoul has warned of strong countermeasures unless the North stops the balloon bombardment, saying it violates the armistice deal that ended hostilities in the 1950-53 Korean War.
