Protests as USS Osprey aircraft arrive in Japan

The US military's Osprey aircraft arrived in Japan early Monday as residents rallied against their deployment after recent crashes raised safety concerns. Live television footage showed MV-22s being unloaded from a cargo ship at the US Marines' base in Iwakuni, western Japan.
