World IN BRIEF : CHINA

WWII Germ-Test Victims' Urns Found

May 21, 1997|From Times Wire Reports

Buried in big, earthen pots, the remains of Chinese who died in Japanese germ warfare experiments during World War II have been found in southern China, state-run media reported. The graves were the first discovered in a three-year search for the remains of those victimized by a group of Japanese scientists. In 1994, a Chinese historian reported he had uncovered evidence that as many as 20,000 World War II refugees died from germ warfare experiments conducted at Zhongshan University, near Guangzhou.
