North Korean leader Kim Jong Un visits the Kwisong SalternTOKYO/SEOUL (Reuters) - Japan put its military on alert on Monday for a possible North Korean ballistic missile firing, while South Korea also said it had detected evidence of launch preparations, officials from Japan and South Korea said. Tension in the region has been high since North Korea conducted its fourth nuclear test in January and followed that with a satellite launch and test launches of various missiles. Japan ordered naval destroyers and Patriot anti-ballistic missile batteries to be ready to shoot down any projectile heading for the country, state broadcaster NHK said.

South Korea has detected evidence of a possible planned North Korea missile launch, a defense official said on Monday, after Japan put its military on alert for a ballistic missile launch by the isolated state. The South Korean defense official declined to comment on what type of missile might be launched but South Korea's Yonhap News Agency said officials believe it would be an intermediate-range Musudan missile. North Korea made three failed launch attempts of the Musudan in April, according to U.S. and South Korean officials.

A "Now Hiring" sign is posted on a Verizon store in Manhattan in New YorkAn agreement between Verizon Communications Inc and unions potentially ending a nearly seven-week strike includes 1,400 new jobs and pay raises topping 10 percent, the company and unions representing about 40,000 workers said on Monday. The deal, which one analyst called "very rich" for Verizon workers, could be a prelude to the company exiting the wireline telecommunications business, transforming into a wireless internet business. Verizon, the No. 1 U.S. wireless provider, and the Communications Workers of America (CWA) had reached a tentative deal on Friday.
