  • Description

    In Japan, at least seven officials and a number of farmers and students were injured in a violent demonstration on Tuesday (22 February). The clash occurred in Narita, site of Tokyo's new international airport.

    The original opening date for the airport had been set for April this year -- but problems, including the refusal of farmers to sell their land for the airport, have delayed progress. The airport is now hoped to be operational sometime in 1972.

    The farmers were aided by about 1,000 left-wing students, and the 300 officials were backed up by about 1,000 riot police. More reinforcements were expected for both sides, and clashes are expected to come to a head this coming week-end.
