Ja­panese wartime bul­lets dis­cov­ered

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA -

A Chi­nese vil­lager has dis­cov­ered a cache of 1,555 bul­lets left by Ja­panese troops decades ago. Cui Xin from Yongchang vil­lage in Ji­dong county dis­cov­ered two rot­ten wooden boxes on the banks of a river on Tues­day, in­side which was the am­mu­ni­tion. He in­formed the border po­lice, who later an­nounced that the bul­lets, weigh­ing 47.5 kilo­grams, were still live. The am­mu­ni­tion is be­lieved to have been left by Ja­panese troops dur­ing the War of Re­sis­tance Against Ja­panese Ag­gres­sion from 1937 to 1945. They have been passed on to the au­thor­i­ties.
