The US military began deploying the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system (THAAD) in South Korea on Monday with the first pieces of the system arriving in at the Osan Air Base.

The deployment comes a day following North Korea's launching of four ballistic missiles, three of which landed in Japan's exclusive economic zone (EEZ).

Seoul and Washington agreed on THAAD in July 2016. The South Korean government hopes for the system to be operational by the end of the year.
