July 08, 2000|From Times Wire Reports

No liquor, a strict curfew and uniforms at all times: Those are the temporary rules laid down for U.S. Marines on Okinawa after a serviceman was charged with molesting a 14-year-old Japanese girl in her bed. The Marine Corps commander, Lt. Gen. Earl B. Hailston, said the measures are meant to guarantee security during a summit of the Group of 8 industrial nations, to be held July 21-23 on Okinawa. He said they had been discussed before the Marine's arrest Monday. The rules were not imposed on the Air Force, Army or Navy units on Okinawa, said a spokeswoman for U.S. forces in Japan.
