Improvised rocket launchers were fired close to a US airbase near Tokyo, police and the American military said Friday, with suspicions falling on one of Japan's small ultra-leftist groups.
No-one was hurt and no damage was done in the incident, which media reported came just hours after the arrest of a senior member of a radical faction, and followed a pattern seen four years earlier.
"The incident occurred at 11:30 pm on Thursday. Flying objects were launched near the US military's Yokota Airbase," a spokesman for Tokyo Metropolitan Police said.
