North Korea defectors send anti-Kim flyers into London embassy compound

May 31 (UPI) -- A group of North Korean defectors tossed 500 copies of anti-Pyongyang flyers into the North Korean Embassy in London, a major diplomatic outpost in Europe for the regime.

Fighters for Free North Korea, a South Korea-based group of activists, said Friday in statement they had distributed the flyers while protesting the Kim Jong Un regime early last week, Yonhap reported.

Three activists threw the flyers into the embassy compound on May 21, after arriving on the premises around noon.

The group initially requested to be let in to deliver a message to the North Korean leader.

1. It is alleged that these people are North Korean defectors

I've been studying reports on this group in detail for months and thus far there has been no proof offered that the actors involved are "North Korean defectors." In fact, this has been a subject of discussion in the South Korean broadcast media. The two actors with the highest public profile are Adrian Hong and Christopher Ahn. Hong is a Yale educated resident of the US and Ahn is a US citizen and USMC veteran.

The only North Korean publicly associated with the group is Kim Han Sol, Kim Jong Nam's son, who is hiding somewhere and was assisted by Choellima Civil Defense the Free Joseon predecessor group.
