The Japanese Defense Ministry on Saturday finished deploying Patriot missile defense systems in the country’s south in anticipation of North Korea’s possible strike on Guam, the state broadcaster NHK said.

TOKYO (Sputnik) — North Korea's military has said it plans to fire four medium- to long-range missiles at the US Pacific territory and is waiting for approval from the nation’s leader Kim Jong Un. The projectiles will travel over Japan’s Shimane, Hiroshima and Kochi prefectures.
