Sirens, doves as China marks 80 years since Nanjing massacreSirens blared and thousands of doves were released as Chinese President Xi Jinping presided over a sombre ceremony in Nanjing marking 80 years since the wartime massacre in the city by Japanese troops. “China and Japan are close neighbours, neighbours who can’t move away,” said Yu Zhengsheng, a former member of China’s top Communist leadership who now chairs a parliamentary body. China and Japan should build on their “long, rich history” of links to deepen “friendship”, Yu said, avoiding reference to bitter disputes over the massacre.
