Edward Cody: 16 Arrested in Anti-Japan Protests

From the Washington Post:

Chinese authorities announced Tuesday that 16 youths had been formally arrested and 26 others temporarily jailed in connection with violent anti-Japanese protests that erupted 10 days ago in Shanghai.

The announcement, via the official New China News Agency, appeared to be a warning to any Chinese who might be planning more protests against Japan on the May 1 labor holiday or on May 4, the anniversary of a celebrated uprising by nationalist students in 1919.
