A US cruiser equipped with an advanced missile defense system has docked in Japan, as concerns linger over North Korea's missile program. The USS Shiloh, a cruiser equipped with Aegis technology, which is geared toward tracking and shooting down enemy missiles, sailed into the port of Yokosuka on Tuesday. Protestors could be seen among the vessels that escorted the 170 meter-long cruiser into port. One small craft carried a sign that read "Stop MD," referring to missile defense.
