THAAD to be deployed to city of Daegu by 2017 despite objections from China

U.S. Forces Korea has decided to deploy a single THAAD battery to the city of Daegu, a southeastern city in South Korea, a local newspaper reported Thursday.

"A survey team from the U.S. visited South Korea last November to find out the eligible places for THAAD deployment and selected Daegu after a month of survey," an unnamed government source was quoted by South Korean local newspaper Segye Ilbo as saying.
