Thousands of Japanese are protesting for a second day in Shinjuku, Tokyo following an
alleged assassination attempt by Korean agents on the Japanese royal family. Although a
statement from Naicho (Japan's main intelligence agency) indicates that the prime suspects
are reactionary nationals, the general public blames the so-called "North" Korean secret
Several shops owned by ethnic Koreans were broken into and in some cases lit on fire by
protesters. In one instance, a local store owner and his son were dragged onto the street and
beaten by demonstrators. The Japanese government has condemned these attacks, pledging
the support of police and military units to maintain order.
