U.S. missile launchers and other equipment needed to set up a controversial missile defense system have arrived in South Korea, the U.S. and South Korean militaries said Tuesday, a day after North Korea test-fired four ballistic missiles into the ocean near Japan.The delivery of the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system, or THAAD, came as ordinary people were drawn into an increasingly bitter diplomatic battle between North Korea and Malaysia over the killing of an exiled member of North Korea's ruling family. The plans to deploy the THAAD within this year have angered not only North Korea, but also China and Russia, which see the system's powerful radars as a security threat. Before the murder, North Korea could count Malaysia as one of its strongest friends.Last week, Malaysia said it would investigate North Korea front companies after a Reuters report showed that Pyongyang's spy agency was running an arms network in the country.
