Temple defaced after torch refusal | The Japan Times Online
Zenkoji Temple in the city of Nagano was vandalized between Saturday night and Sunday morning with spray-painted graffiti, police said.

The 1,400-year-old Buddhist temple had declined Friday to serve as the starting point for the Japan leg of the Beijing Olympic torch relay next Saturday, citing the crackdown on monks in Tibet as well as security concerns.

Sad.
