From Reuters.com:

Thousands of Chinese smashed windows and threw rocks at the Japanese embassy and ambassador’s residence in Beijing on Saturday in a protest against Japan’s wartime past and its bid for a U.N. Security Council seat.

Protesters pushed their way through a paramilitary police cordon to the gates of the Japanese ambassador’s residence, throwing stones and water bottles and shouting “Japanese pig come out.”

Some 500 paramilitary police holding plastic shields raced into the compound and barricaded the gates. Protesters threw stones and bricks at the residence, and shouted at police, “Chinese people shouldn’t protect Japanese.”

China Daily also published Xinhua’s article entitled Thousands rally against Japan in Beijing.
