South Korea’s National Assembly has passed a controversial law making it illegal to launch propaganda material into North Korea, in a bid to revive denuclearisation talks.
Under this new law, offenders will now face up to three years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.
But defectors and activists say the law violates their right to free speech.

Al Jazeera’s Rob McBride reports from Seoul, South Korea.
