Japanese arrest man tied to ambassador threat
TOKYO- Authorities in Japan say they arrested a man for making a bomb threat against the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo and suspect he's the same person who threatened U.S. Ambassador Caroline Kennedy.
Police say the man was arrested on the island of Okinawa and he also threatened to bomb the U.S. base, Camp Schwab on the island.
Investigators say the motive isn't known but Mitsuyoshi Kamiya admitted that he made the bomb threats.
Okinawa is home to about 25,000 American troops in Japan and residents have complained for years about crime, noise and other issues associated to the base.
There are 50,000 U.S. troops stationed in Japan.
