Visitors look at a dog with a placard with Chinese characters reading, “Boycott Japanese products” near the September 18 Monument, on the 81st anniversary of Japan’s invasion of China, in Shenyang, Liaoning province September 18, 2012. Japanese businesses shut hundreds of stores and plants and the country’s embassy suspended services in China on Tuesday as anti-Japan protests reignited and risked dragging a territorial dispute between Asia’s two biggest economies deeper into crisis.
