SEOUL, April 2 (Yonhap) — North Korea’s military warned Thursday it will attack “major targets” in Japan should Tokyo shoot down a satellite it plans to orbit as early as this weekend.

The warning comes as leaders of South Korea, the United States and Japan are meeting at the G-20 summit in London, with North Korea’s rocket launch high on the agenda of their bilateral talks. The three have threatened to bring Pyongyang to the U.N. Security Council for sanctions if it goes ahead with the launch announced as scheduled between Saturday and Wednesday.

Government sources in Seoul said on Thursday that North Korea has sent a fleet of fighter jets to the east coast near Musudan-ri, the launch site in North Hamgyong Province.
