NAHA — U.S. Marines in Okinawa Prefecture began military exercises on Tuesday, including ones using live ammunition, at a new combat facility at the Marine Corps' Camp Hansen in central Okinawa, amid protests by local residents.

The prefectural government and residents have been strongly opposed to the drills as the facility in the town of Kin has no fence around it and is only 300 meters away from residential areas, while the nearby residents will be exposed to the danger of being hit by stray bullets. (Kyodo News)"
