Protesters rallied in the South Korean small farming village of Soseong-ri on Thursday against the THAAD missile defense system’s presence in the country. Local police tried to clear the protesters from the road. South Korea and the US added four more launchers to the contentious missile defense system on the same day. The addition of these remaining launchers completes the deployment of a THAAD system against a potential N. Korean attack. On Wednesday, a similar demonstration was held by hundreds of activists in the country’s province of Gyeongsangbuk, where dozens of people were injured in clashes with police.
