Anti-Japan protests hit China over disputed islands - NewsX
Thousands of Chinese protesters on Saturday pelted stones at Japan's embassy here amid growing tensions between the two sides over a group of islands in East China Sea, where surveillance ships dispatched by Beijing asked Japanese Coast Guard vessels to leave the disputed area or face consequences. The anti-Japan demonstrations were also reported from China's commercial hub of Shanghai, eastern city of Nanjing and Xian and Taiyuan in the north. Protesters hurled stones at the Japanese embassy here and asked Tokyo to immediately vacate the disputed islands, media reports said. The demonstrations follow Japan's recent announcement that it had bought the islands which it calls Senkaku, while China refers to the area as Diaoyu. For more log onto- www.newsx.com
