SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea's Defence Ministry said it will announce at 2.00 a.m. ET on Wednesday the location of the THAAD anti-missile defense unit to be deployed with the U.S. military in South Korea to counter the missile threat from North Korea.

North Korea's military on Monday threatened to retaliate against the move by the South and the United States by taking "physical response" once the location and time of the deployment are decided.
