AP: Chinese Stone Japan’s Embassy

Bj From AP, via CBS News:

About 1,000 protesters threw rocks and broke windows at the Japanese Embassy on Saturday after a noisy march demanding a boycott of Japanese goods to oppose new textbooks that critics say gloss over Tokyo’s wartime atrocities.

Protesters shouted “Boycott Japan!” as hundreds of police, some with riot helmets and shields, formed a human wall to keep the crowd away from the embassy. Protesters smashed the windows of a guardhouse outside the fenced compound.

The protesters marched to the embassy after a rally by more than 6,000 people in the Chinese capital’s northwest university district, where some burned a Japanese flag.
