The South Korean government of Seoul ordered a demolition crew to take down a huge cross standing near the North Korean border.
The Guardian reports that, "South Korea has pulled down a 43-year-old illuminated Christmas tower that North Korea viewed as a symbol of propaganda warfare, with officials saying the structure was unsafe."
Formerly, the site displayed a Christian cross lit up with neon lights.
According to the Guardian, "The huge steel tower, known as Aegibong, was demolished last week and Seoul plans to build a park in its place, according to the defence ministry and city officials."
South Korean officials claim the building was torn down for so-called safety reasons.
