    Background: IN TOKYO, FEB. 15, ABOUT 200 INDONESIAN STUDENTS, STUDYING IN JAPAN, HURLED STONES AT THE DUTCH EMBASSY AND TRIED TO PULL DOWN THE DUTCH FLAG. THEY WERE PROTESTING AGAINST THE LANDING AT TOKYO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT OF A KLM AIRCRAFT WITH DUTCH SOLDIERS IN CIVILIAN CLOTHES SOUND FOR WEST NEW GUINEA.

    POLICE REINFORCEMENTS WERE RUSHED TO THE DUTCH EMBASSY TO PREVENT FURTHER VIOLENCE. POLICEMEN DETAINED THREE STUDENTS WHO TRIED TO ENTER THE EMBASSY PREMISES.

    FORTY-SIX DUTCH SOLDIERS IN CIVILIAN CLOTHES HAD PASSED THROUGH TOKYO, FEB. 10, IN A KLM SCHEDULED FLIGHT TO BIAK, NEW GUINEA. JAPANESE OFFICIALS CHECKED THE PLANE TO ENSURE THAT THERE WERE NO ARMS IN IT.

    JAPAN IS 'NEUTRAL' IN THE INDONESIAN-DUTCH DISPUTE OVER WEST NEW GUINEA BUT FOUND IT VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO PREVENT THE DUTCH SOLDIERS PASSING THROUGH, SINCE THEY TRAVELLED IN CIVILIAN CLOTHES BY SCHEDULED FLIGHT, INVOLVING NO VIOLATION OF INTERNATIONAL AIR REGULATIONS.
