    A shortwave radio station in Japan is broadcasting messages to its citizens in North Korea, updating them about Pyongyang's missile launches and what to do in the event of US retaliation.

    The station was opened 12 years ago to help the search for Japanese people, suspected of being abducted by North Korea.
