The Need to Control is a Terrible Thing

N Korea furious at South’s Christmas lights plan

Security was tight when the border Christmas 'tree' was lit last year

North Korea has warned South Korea of “unexpected consequences” if it lights up a Christmas tree-shaped tower near their tense border.

The North’s state-run Uriminjokkiri website said it would amount to a form of “psychological warfare”.

Seoul’s annual tradition of lighting up a Christmas tree tower was suspended in 2003 following a warming of ties.

However, the South lit a tower last year as relations deteriorated between the neighbours.

The Associated Press quotes a defence ministry official as saying the South has agreed to allow Christian groups to light a further two towers this year.

The official says the towers will be located in the western, central and eastern parts of the border and security will be tight during the 15 days they are lit, beginning on 23 December.
