Security tight in China to head off anti-Japan protests

From Japan Today:

Police guarded streets, parks and other potential protest hotspots in Shanghai and Beijing Sunday morning to head off any further protests after three weeks of demonstrations last month led to vandalism and a diplomatic rift between Tokyo and Beijing.

In Beijing, about 200 police officers stood guard at the Hailong Building, a starting point for the April 9 protests that drew upward of 10,000 people and culminated in vandalism to Japanese diplomatic property plus three Japanese-style restaurants. About 1,000 Shanghai police officers weathered a downpour to guard the Japanese Consulate.
