Adjust font size:

Chinese and Japanese monks hold a religious assembly to mourn people killed by invading Japanese troops 72 years ago in the Nanjing Massacre in Nanjing, capital of east China's Jiangsu Province, December 13, 2009. About 30 Japanese monks, 50 Chinese monks and buddhism believers and 30 massacre survivors prayed for peace at the assembly held here on Sunday, the 72th anniversary of the Nanjing Massacre. Japanese troops occupied Nanjing on December 13, 1937, and launched a six-week massacre. Chinese records show more than 300,000 people, not only disarmed soldiers but also civilians, were killed.
