It has long been thought that many North Korean residents are suffering from famine. Yesterday a few activists from neighbouring South Korea did their bit to aid the problem.

Generous activists  launched balloons across the border with North Korea carrying thousands of Choco Pies – a favoured chocolate snack that has recently become the target of a reported crackdown.

Approximately 200 anti-Pyongyang activists released 50 large helium balloons carrying 770 pounds of snacks, including 10,000 Choco Pies from a park in the border city of Paju, organisers of the event said.
