WASHINGTON (AP) -- . . .

11:20 a.m.

Japan has started deploying land-based Patriot interceptors after North Korea threatened to send ballistic missiles flying over western Japan and landing near Guam.

The Defense Ministry said Friday the PAC-3 surface-to-air interceptors are being deployed at four locations: Hiroshima, Kochi, Shimane and Ehime.

The deployment is largely aimed at responding to the risk of falling fragments while missiles fly over the region.

The four PAC-3 systems are brought from eastern Japan, as its missile defense is largely centered around Tokyo. They are expected to arrive in the designated sites early Saturday.

5. Is it possible to intercept the missiles before they fly over western Japan? lock on them at launch?

6. That's what I'm wondering too. If the missiles fly over Japan, is that their airspace?

Can N.K.'s missiles be shot down by Japan?
