China’s Xi says Nanjing Massacre undeniable on 77th anniversary


NANJING, China: President Xi Jinping said Saturday that no one can deny the Nanjing Massacre, as China for the first time held a national day of remembrance for the Japanese military rampage that Beijing says killed 300,000 people.

State media estimated 10,000 people attended a ceremony in Nanjing to mark the 77th anniversary of the massacre, including ageing survivors -- some in their 90s -- of the Japanese invasion of the eastern city on December 13, 1937.
