Intruder breaks into Okinawa Marine base, detonates gas canisters near Japanese office
CAMP FOSTER, Okinawa — Japanese police and U.S. military officials are investigating after someone broke into a Marine Corps base and detonated a pair of small gas canisters outside a building that houses Japanese government officials.
