Four more THAAD anti-ballistic missile launchers will be installed this week at a United States military base in South Korea, Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday, citing South Korea's defence ministry.

Police dispersed the residents around 5 a.m. but only after dozens of locals and police officers sustained injuries and were taken to nearby hospitals.

Police disperse protesters outside a community center in Seongju, some 300 kilometers south of Seoul, on September 7, 2017.

On top of hosting more U.S. military equipment, they're looking at their own military buildup. The Ministry of National Defense said the number of police forces may grow to 8,000 in the likelihood of violent protests. The camp already has two operational launchers. A Thaad unit typically consists of six launchers, 48 interceptors, a fire control and communication unit and radar.

Tensions between the U.S. and North Korea threaten to have devastating consequences for South Korea. Meanwhile, hundreds of local residents and activists are gathered near the US base protesting the deployment.

Russian president Vladimir Putin has condemned North Korea's latest nuclear test as "provocative". Seoul and Washington have claimed it is only for self-defense against the North.
