Japanese Flags Torched

Japanese flags were set on fire in cities across China as demonstrators showed their anger over Japan “nationalizing” the disputed remote islands in the East China Sea.

Protesters in the central Chinese city of Wuhan (pictured) forced big Japanese companies like Honda to shut down operations. Other well-known firms like Mazda, Mitsubishi, and Panasonic also shuttered plants and stores to prevent damage from Chinese protests.
