Japan protests after new report of incident involving drunken US serviceman

Japan's government is lodging a formal complaint with U.S. officials over reports of another incident involving misbehavior by U.S. troops on the island of Okinawa. The report comes despite a new curfew imposed after two Navy sailors were arrested for allegedly raping a local woman.

Authorities on Okinawa say a 24-year-old airman is suspected of entering an apartment and punching a young boy before trying to escape through the third-floor window. The airman — whose name has not been released — fell and was taken to a military hospital.

He had reportedly been drinking.

Military-related crime is an emotional issue on Okinawa, and all 52,000 U.S. troops in Japan were put under a curfew after the sailors were arrested for the alleged rape there on Oct 16.
