New US guided missile warship deployed to Japan

A new top-of-the-line US guided missile destroyer, equipped with sensitive missile-tracking radar, was deployed to Japan on Saturday, amid mounting tensions over a series of missile tests by neighboring North Korea. The USS Mustin arrived at Yokosuka, homeport to the US Navy's 7th Fleet, on Saturday with a crew of 300 sailors for permanent assignment to the region, 7th Fleet spokeswoman Hanako Tomizuka said.
