Scores of former North Korean soldiers who defected to South Korea will this week form a group aimed at toppling the regime with the help of serving soldiers there, one of its leaders said Monday.
Some 200 ex-soldiers will Thursday launch the NK People’s Liberation Front, Jang Ce-Yul, the group’s secretary general, told AFP.
“We still stay in touch with many of our former colleagues in the military, and many of them are fully aware they can’t survive long under Kim Jong-Il’s regime,” said Jang, who defected two years ago.

“We will provide aid to help them bring down the North’s regime at the hands of the North Korean people and military.”
He said the group would help smuggle publications, videos and other material into the tightly-controlled country and circulate them among the North’s soldiers.
