Okinawa vice governor protests U.S. Marine helicopter incident

Mainichi reported on Saturday that Okinawa Vice Governor Jahana lodged a protest on Friday with Okinawa Defense Bureau Director Tanaka over the incident on Tuesday in which a window fell into the sea from a U.S. Marine CH-35E helicopter. He requested that the U.S. Marines suspend CH-35E flights for one week and take thorough measures to ensure safety and investigate the incident. Jahana also complained about the alleged delay in reporting the incident and said the steps taken by the U.S. military to prevent such accidents have been “extremely inadequate.”
