China memorial

Chinese students gather during a memorial Thursday marking the 70th anniversary of the Nanjing massacre. Air sirens wailed in the eastern Chinese city, as thousands of somber, tearful residents crowded the grounds of the Massacre Memorial Hall. The city, then known as Nanking, suffered a rampage of killing, rape and looting by invading Japanese troops in 1937.
