Protesters clashed with thousands of police at a South Korean Village on Thursday as components of a controversial system to guard against North Korean missiles were deployed.

More than 30 people were injured when around 8,000 South Korean police broke-up a blockade of about 300 villagers and civic groups opposed to the THAAD system deployment, fire officials said.

The decision to deploy the THAAD system has drawn strong objections from China, which believes its radar could be used to look deeply into its territory and will upset the regional security balance.
