BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | Japan to 'destroy' N Korea rocketJapan says it is deploying missile interceptors to destroy any parts of a North Korean rocket that might fall on its territory.
North Korea has said it will launch a satellite into orbit next month.
South Korea, Japan and the US say the launch is cover for a test of the Taepodong-2 ballistic missile.
The US said a launch would violate UN Security Council resolutions. Russia said North Korea should "abstain" from testing any missiles.
This should be very interesting, considering North Korea swore to declare war on anybody who dares intercept there rocket.
