So far, the Japanese media seems to view the hack as an American problem rather than a domestic one. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes, File)Japan's biggest newspaper, Yomiuri Shimbun, featured a story about Sony Corp. on its website Friday. It wasn't about hacking.

Palestinian protesters take cover from tear gas thrown by Israeli security forces during clashes following a demonstration against Israeli settlements in the West Bank village of Turmus Aya, north of Ramallah on December 19, 2014Israeli aircraft hit Gaza for the first time since an August truce ended 50 days of war after a rocket hit the Jewish state, witnesses and the army said Saturday. A health ministry spokesman in the Gaza Strip said there were no casualties in the air strike, which came just hours after the rocket hit an open field in southern Israel on Friday without causing casualties or damage. It was only the third time a rocket had been fired from the Palestinian enclave since the August 26 truce between Israel and the territory's Islamist de facto rulers Hamas. The Israeli army said the air strike had "targeted a Hamas terror infrastructure site".
