China-Japan row: objects thrown at US ambassador's car

Help

The US ambassador's car was surrounded at the gates of the American embassy in Beijing.

The demonstrators chanted anti-American slogans, and threw small objects at the vehicle.

Tensions were high on Tuesday after days of sometimes violent anti-Japanese protests in China, over a chain of disputed islands in the east China Sea.
