South Korea begins dismantling anti-North Korea propaganda speakers

South Korea has begun dismantling huge loudspeakers used to blare anti-Pyongyang broadcasts and K-pop songs from its border with North Korea.

The leaders of the rival Koreas agreed at a historic summit last week on a set of reconciliation steps, including the suspension of propaganda broadcasts and other hostile acts along their tense border.

Seoul's Defence Ministry says it began disassembling front-line loudspeakers Tuesday before pulling them away from the border.

South Korea's Yonhap News Agency says Seoul detected signs that North Korea was taking similar steps on Tuesday but the Defence Ministry says it cannot confirm the report.
