Japan Protests Another US Troop-Related Incident

A U.S. airman is suspected of assaulting a young boy Friday on the southern Japanese island of Okinawa, authorities said. The incident comes just two weeks after a curfew was imposed on all 52,000 U.S. troops in Japan over the arrest of two Navy sailors for allegedly raping a local woman.

Japan’s Foreign Ministry said the government had lodged a formal complaint with U.S. Ambassador John Roos.
