Today marks the 91st anniversary of the September 18 Incident. On September 18, 1931, Japanese troops blew up a section of the South Manchurian railway under their control in Shenyang City, capital of northeast China's Liaoning Province and blamed China for the sabotage. They used it as a pretext for the invasion of Shenyang and then the whole region. The incident marked the beginning of the Chinese People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression and opened up the prelude to the world's anti-fascist war.
Today, a memorial ceremony is being held in Shenyang to pay tribute to the victims and martyrs who sacrificed in the 14-year war. Follow CGTN to different sites in Northeast China and learn more about the event and the dark history.
