Monkey stuns Japanese commuters


A mystery monkey caused uproar at a busy train station in Tokyo, Japan.

Police tried to capture the creature with nets, but it climbed down and ran away through the crowds of commuters.

It remains unclear where the monkey came from - it could be a stray pet, or a wild monkey from a mountain area near Tokyo.
