Balloons fly to North Korea – level 2
South Korean protesters launched three balloons with anti-Pyongyang messages in a city near the border of the Koreas.
In the 50,000 leaflets, the protesters condemned North Korea’s provocations against the Republic of Korea. The leaflets criticised Kim Jong Un, as well.
In January, North Korea did a nuclear test, and in February, it launched a rocket. This meant that the situation between the Koreas became worse.
Difficult words: launch (to send up into the air), leaflet (a piece of paper with some information), condemn (to criticise).
