Japan Okinawa Rape_Hass.jpg

Okinawa citizens stage a demonstration Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2012, denouncing a rape of a Japanese woman by two U.S. sailors in front of U.S. Marine Corps' Camp Foster in Kitanakagusuku in Okinawa, southern Japan. Weary of rules limiting the freedom of their "overwhelmingly outstanding" sailors, the top commanders of the U.S. Navy in Japan eased after-hours restrictions this month. Just four days later, two sailors were accused of rape on Okinawa, a small island that has long had a tense relationship with the large American force stationed there. (AP Photo/Kyodo News)
