Protests turn violent in China as tension flares over a territorial dispute with Japan. In the southern city of Shenzen, demonstrators overturned cars - all Japanese models - and clashed with police. Other demonstrations were held in several cities across China. The protests were in response to Japanese nationalists who landed on a disputed island in the East China Sea over the weekend. Several people waved flags on the shore of the island claimed by both Japan and China. Chinese activists were deported from Japan for the same stunt last week. Tokyo and Beijing have been feuding for decades over the island chain, known as the Senkaku in Japan and the Diaoyu in China. The islands sit near potentially lucrative maritime gas fields.
