JAPAN - Japan has put its military on alert for a possible North Korean ballistic missile launch.

It's ordered its naval destroyers and anti- missile patriot batteries to stand ready to shoot down any projectile heading for japan.

It's the third time this year that the country has put its forces on alert after detecting signs of Pyongyang launches.

North Korea conducted its fourth nuclear test in January and has followed that with various other test launches.
