Japan protests to US over Okinawa woman's suspicious death

A rally against a new US military base in Okinawa, on February 21, 2016 in TokyoJapan lodged a protest Thursday with the United States after a US base worker was arrested in connection to the suspicious death of an Okinawa woman, media reported, a week before President Barack Obama pays a high-profile visit to the country. Okinawa was the site of brutal fighting in World War II but is now considered a strategic linchpin supporting the two countries’ decades-long security alliance. More than half of the 47,000 US military personnel in Japan are stationed on Okinawa, and crimes by service personnel — including rapes — have sparked angry local protests in the past.
