China releases Japanese wartime documents: state media
By Alexandra Harney SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China has released previously confidential Japanese wartime documents, including some about comfort women forced to serve in military brothels during World War Two, state media reported. Last week, Japan's Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Ltd paid about $29 million for the release of a ship seized by China over a dispute that dates back to the 1930s war between the two countries. Nationalist politicians in Japan have been urging Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe to water down a 1993 apology to comfort women. The Jilin documents include Japanese records on the exploitation of "comfort women" by troops as well as details of the Nanjing Massacre that began in December 1937.
