China cyberattacks hit Japan in island row: police

At least 19 Japanese websites, including those of a government ministry, courts and a hospital, have come under cyberattack, apparently from China, police said Wednesday.

Many of the websites were altered to show messages proclaiming Chinese sovereignty over the Diaoyu islands, a Japanese-administered chain Tokyo calls Senkaku, the National Police Agency (NPA) said in a statement.

On Sunday afternoon, when the attack was most intense, 95 percent of traffic to the bureau’s website was from China, Kyodo said, citing minister Tatsuo Kawabata.
