China marks 92nd anniversary of September 18 Incident
A commemoration ceremony for the 92nd anniversary of the September 18 Incident was held in Shenyang, northeast China's Liaoning Province on Monday. The bells were tolled 14 times to represent China's 14-year-long war against Japanese aggression. Sirens wailed at 9:18 a.m. to remind people of the history.
On the night of September 18, 1931, the Japanese army destroyed a section of the railway in Shenyang, falsely accusing Chinese troops of sabotage to justify a full-scale invasion.
The commemoration serves as a reminder for the Chinese people to keep dark days in mind.
