China. A few hours after the regulations were announced a Japanese army spokesman complained that someone had thrown three hand grenades at a Japanese military launch in Soochow creek, bordering the British defense sector of the international sector. One of the bombs exploded, the spokesman said, and slightly wounded a Japanese soldier. Death Penally Provided Announcement of the regulations was a new development. They apply to all territory occupied by the Japanese in other parts of China as well as in Shanghai and the spokesman who announced them said foreigners would be subject to them. The death penalty is provided "if 01- fenses" tinder the regulation are deemed sufficiently serious.
