Balloons released for North Korea


Activists in South Korea have defied warnings from the government of North Korea and sent a host of giant balloons to the reclusive state.

The balloons were released near the border carrying leaflets, DVDs, and money as part of a campaign organised by mainly North Korean defectors.

Dimitri O'Donnell reports.
