Japan has put its military on alert for a possible North Korean ballistic missile launch, national and international media said. The Tokyo government ordered naval destroyers and anti-ballistic missile Patriot batteries to be ready to shoot down any projectile heading for Japan, state broadcaster NHK said.

A government official confirmed that an order was issued, according to the Reuters news agency. The official declined to be identified as he is not authorized to speak to the media, the agency said.
