    Pyongyang has restarted its propaganda loudspeaker broadcasts along the border with South Korea, local media reported Friday.

    TOKYO (Sputnik) — The decision follows Seoul’s similar action in response to North Korea’s recent nuclear test, South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency said.

    Earlier in the day, South Korea restarted its propaganda broadcasts and raised the alert level near the border to the highest level, as well as deployed artillery at the locations.

    On Wednesday, North Korea announced that it had successfully tested a nuclear fusion bomb.
