From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Japan: Onaga demands air base plans halted
Tuesday 24th March 2014
OKINAWA governor Takeshi Onaga instructed Japan’s Defence Ministry yesterday to suspend work at the proposed site of a US air base.
Mr Onaga claimed a concrete anchor thrown into the sea for a drilling survey of a reef at the designated site had damaged coral.
He took office four months ago after winning an election over a predecessor who had allowed the Henoko site to be developed to relocate the base.
Mr Onaga said the prefecture needed to conduct an independent survey to assess the damage and demanded the ministry stop activity in a week.
