BEIJING (AP) - China has detained two men over an attack last week on the Japanese ambassador's car In which a flag was ripped off of the front of the vehicle.
 
    
The official Xinhua News Agency said Tuesday that two men aged 23 and 25 are being held for disturbing public order and another was issued a warning. It said they admitted that they committed the Aug. 27 attack, which came amid a flare-up in tensions over a disputed group of uninhabited islands in the East China Sea.
 
    
Anti-Japanese street protests broke out after Japan detained and later released 14 Hong Kong activists who landed on the islands, called Diaoyu in Chinese and Senkaku in Japanese. The islands are controlled by Japan but also claimed by China and Taiwan.
