Second Chinese protest against Japan
Guangzhou, China, Apr. 10 (UPI) -- Some 3,000 Chinese people protested outside Japan's consulate in Guangzhou, China, Sunday, the second consecutive day of demonstrations.
The Sunday demonstration involved chanting, singing and the burning of several Japanese flags. It followed a Saturday protest in Beijing, during which several windows in the Japanese embassy were broken.
Japanese Ambassador Koreshige Anami called on the Chinese government to take stronger measures to protect Japanese citizens in China, CNN reported.
The protests are against Japan's bid to become a permanent U.N. Security Council member and have been further fueled by how Japanese textbooks recount Japan's wartime record, CNN said.
