Four more rocket launchers for the US-backed Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system were deployed on Thursday morning in Seongju, some 300 kilometers south of Seoul, amid local protests.

Dozens of protesters were injured in clashes with police as demonstrators took to the streets of Seongju to oppose the deployment.

Local residents fear that the system would turn the town into a target for attacks from Pyongyang.

"We cannot accept THAAD under any conditions," Yonhap quoted a local official as saying.
