Numerous Chinese cities saw anti-Japan protests erupt, as the row continues over who owns an island chain in the East China Sea. The dispute has threatened an economic backlash as Japanese shops closed their doors. Restaurants and retailers were targeted by protesters, and businesses such Uniqlo forced to shut a number of stores. As the dispute rumbles on, Chinese fishing boats have reportedly been to waters near the disputed island chain. The Japanese authorities also say Chinese surveillance ships remain near the islets.
