NAGASAKI (Kyodo) A U.S. Navy destroyer forward-deployed to Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, entered Nagasaki port Friday morning despite opposition from some locals stemming from a Yokosuka robbery-murder involving a U.S. sailor in January.

The 8,315-ton Stethem is visiting Nagasaki to promote friendship, according to the U.S. Navy. It will stay there until Monday.
