The World

Opponents of a plan to expand the New Tokyo International Airport in Narita, Japan, hurled flaming bottles filled with gasoline at an airport guardhouse, injuring two guards. The attack came a day after about 700 leftist protesters wielding bamboo sticks and hurling stones battled with riot police following an anti-airport demonstration. Police made 75 arrests. The leftists support local farmers who refuse to give up their land for construction of a second runway at Narita, which opened in 1978.
