Japan economy shaky as island spat hits business - Article Photos 1/4

In this Sept. 16, 2012 photo, a part of the ceiling has fallen down inside a burned Japanese plant after it was torched by anti-Japan demonstrators on the previous day in Qingdao in Sandong Province, China. The craggy island specks in the East China Sea aren't even an economic backwater. They have no factories, no highways, no shops, no people — only goats. But the high-pitched row between Beijing and Tokyo over their ownership is exacting a growing toll on Japan, threatening to send its recovery from last year's disasters into reverse.
