Anti-Japan protests held in China


Small groups of protesters have demonstrated against Japan in several Chinese cities.

They mark the anniversary of the 1931 "Mukden Incident" that led to Japan's occupation of north-east China.

Anti-Japanese sentiment has been stoked by Japan's arrest of a Chinese fishing boat captain near disputed islands.

Japan has returned the ship and its crew but still holds the captain in detention. China has demanded his release.

In Beijing, dozens gathered outside the Japanese Embassy, while smaller demonstrations were held in Shanghai, Shenyang and Chongqing.
