Two US sailors arrested over Okinawa rape: reports
TOKYO: Two US servicemen were arrested Tuesday on suspicion of gang-raping a Japanese woman in Okinawa, reports said, as anti-American feeling runs
high on the strategically vital island.
The incident comes amid swelling protests over the recent deployment on the island of 12 Osprey transport aircraft, with the plane's perceived poor
safety sparking concern among local residents.
