Japan plans to set up a new police unit covering islands disputed with China, which could amplify pressure in a flash point with its neighbor, public broadcaster NHK reported Monday.

Members of the unit will tackle any unauthorized landings in Okinawa Prefecture, including on the Japanese-controlled Senkaku Islands, the report said without citing sources. The Senkaku Islands are also claimed by China, where they are known as the Diaoyu.
