North Korea crisis: Japan prepares for possible attack

Help

Japan is preparing to defend itself against any aggression from North Korea, setting up Patriot missiles in the capital and deploying warships.

North Korea has moved two missiles to its east coast, as it continues to build tension in the region.

Japan's defence minister Itsunori Onodera has described North Korea's rhetoric as "completely unacceptable".

Martin Patience reports from Tokyo.
