NORTH Korea’s closest neighbours are on red alert after satellite images showed the communist state was preparing to test fire a long-range missile.

New satellite images appear to show movement of components and propellant at the North’s Sohae satellite launch facility, close to its border with China.

Renewed activity at the Sohae Rocket Launch Facility has prompted South Korea to install a US anti-missile defence system.

The South said the sophisticated Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system was needed in the face of increased threats from an advanced North Korean missile programme.

South Korean Defence Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said: “If THAAD is deployed by the US military in Korea, it will be helpful for our security and defence.”

Japan’s military is also on high alert amid fears regional tensions could spiral out of control.

Japan’s defence minister Gen Nakatani is believed to have ordered Aegis destroyers that operate in the Sea of Japan to be ready to target any North Korean projectiles.
