Ryukyu Shimpo gave top play to a report saying that the All-Okinawa Council released on Tuesday the results of its survey conducted in the Henoko and Toyohara districts concerning the height limit set by the United States for ensuring the safety of the airspace around the Futenma Replacement Facility at Henoko. The anti-base group insisted that in addition to seven public facilities, including an elementary school and a community hall, at least four apartment buildings apparently exceed the 54.52-meter height limit. Based on the results of the survey, the group plans to make another request to relevant parties that the construction at Henoko be suspended. Okinawa Times ran a similar front-page story.
