SEOUL, Jan. 8 -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Friday began its anti-South Korea propaganda broadcasts in border areas in response to Seoul's resumption of anti-DPRK broadcasts, Yonhap news agency reported.

A government official was quoted as saying that the DPRK military began anti-South Korea broadcasts in some of its frontline units with loudspeakers, aimed at preventing DPRK soldiers from hearing broadcasts from the South.

The South Korean military resumed propaganda broadcasts from noon as planned at 11 locations along the inter-Korean border, installed with a set of large loudspeakers.

The resumption, which Pyongyang had called as a 'direct act of declaring war,' came in retaliation for what the DPRK claimed was its first successful test of a 'hydrogen bomb' on Wednesday.
