Japanese officials angry after 2 U.S. sailors arrested in Okinawa rape case

Japanese officials expressed outrage after two U.S. sailors were arrested over accusations that they raped a woman on the island of Okinawa, where the American military presence has generated long-simmering resentment, CNN reports. Defense Minister Satoshi Morimoto on Wednesday called the alleged rape “vicious and mean” and said Japanese authorities were lodging protests with the U.S. government and military, as well as demands for better preventive measures. Police in Okinawa identified the detained sailors as U.S. Navy Seaman Christopher Daniel Browning and Petty Officer Skyler Dozierwalker of Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth in Texas.
