Could Hiroshima suffer a SECOND nuclear holocaust? Japan moving missile defences in

FEARS have been raised that Hiroshima could become the first city in history to be hit with a nuclear bomb TWICE, as North Korea prepares to launch missiles into the waters of the US territory of Guam.

The rogue state is said to be finalising plans to launch four Hwasong-12 rockets towards the Pacific island territory, which is home to some 163,000 people.

It will take roughly 14 minutes for the missiles to reach their intended target more than 2,000 miles away, and the local government in Guam has issued guidance to residents on how best to protect themselves from a nuclear attack.

But in Hiroshima, which in 1945 became the first city in history to be hit by a nuclear weapon, the situation has brought back horrific memories and stoked fresh fears of a repeat attack.

North Korea regularly promises to reduce Japan to “debris” in state-sponsored news broadcasts but these sabre-rattling claims have escalated wildly in recent days.

In a statement last week, Pyongyang named Hiroshima as one of three Japanese prefectures its missiles could fly over on their way to Guam, along with Shimane and Kochi.

Yesterday Japan’s defense ministry deployed the Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) missile defence system to Self Defence Forces (SDF) bases in all three cities as a precaution.

An SDF spokesman told CNN there was no plans to shoot the North Korean missiles down as they passed overhead but had rather been deployed “just in case”.

Another senior analyst said the only scenario in which Japan would intercet would be if one of the Hwasong rockets fell short.
