Seoul - Around 100 anti-North Korea activists have gathered in Seoul to protest North Korea's cross-border artillery shelling.

The protesters on Friday burned posters with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's photos and a North Korean flag.

Protester Park Chan-sung says: "We urge UN and the international community to strongly punish and deal with North Korean dictatorship with strong anti-North sanctions and to push the North to renounce nuclear development and weapons."

The tensions have escalated since South Korea accused the rival North of shelling a border town on Thursday and retaliated with dozens of artillery rounds.

North Korea has threatened further action unless Seoul ends loudspeaker broadcasts of anti-Pyongyang propaganda at the border.
