South Korea’s liberal government wants to examine “its environmental impact”. What is the environmental impact of a nuclear bomb hitting Seoul?
South Korea is suspending the deployment of a controversial missile defence system while the government examines its environmental impact.
The rollout of the US-funded Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system (Thaad) may be on hold for a year.
Four recently arrived launchers will not be deployed, an official said. Two already installed will stay in place.
Thaad aims to protect South Korea from the North’s missiles, and has been criticised at home and by China.
