Japan to introduce missile shield (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/3333117.stm)


Japan is to spend billions on US systems to protect itself from missile attack amid tensions with North Korea.


Japan has decided to introduce a missile defence system to shield itself from a possible attack.

It has said that the deployment would be purely defensive and there was no intent to harm other countries.

Japan's Defence Agency said it would allocate $6.5bn over the next five years towards installing two American-made anti-missile systems.
