China and Japan territorial dispute heats up - Editor's Choice - Picture of the Day - September 17, 2012

China

A Chinese policeman emerges from a closed Japanese restaurant covered with Chinese national flags and banners saying "Protect my Diaoyu islands and I love China" as anti-Japanese protests continued outside the Japanese Embassy in Beijing over the Diaoyu islands issue, known as the Senkaku islands in Japanese, on September 17, 2012. The mouthpiece of China's Communist Party warned on on September 17 that Japan's economy could suffer for up to 20 years if Beijing chose to impose sanctions over an escalating territorial row.
