Flag Ripped Off Japan Envoy’s Car In Beijing

An assailant has snapped the flag off the car of Japan’s envoy to Beijing, amid high tension between the nations.

Japanese officials said two cars forced ambassador Uichiro Niwa’s vehicle to stop before a man jumped out and snapped off the flag.

The embassy lodged a complaint, and China’s foreign ministry was later quoted expressing “deep regret”.

The two nations are locked in a bitter row over a small group of islands they both claim in the East China Sea.
