China: September 8, 2003


Another 80 Japanese World War II bombs were found in eastern China. Construction workers found the bombs, neatly lined up and apparently in a collapsed storage bunker. The bombs were safely disposed of. But the Chinese are now pressuring the Japanese to pay for the removal of their World War II munitions. It is estimated that as many as two million Japanese shells and bombs still lie buried in China. Japan, however, feels such an agreement would be too open to corruption. But if the Chinese government allows the media to keep pushing this story, it could be come a major issue the Japanese could not ignore.
