Japan acknowledges its victims as nation looks back in sorrow on anniversary of surrender
Monday 16 August 1993
Japan's new Prime Minister, Morihiro Hosokawa, became the first premier of his country to express sympathy to victims of Japanese militarism. 'I would like to take this opportunity to express deep condolences to victims of the war and their relatives in neighbouring countries in Asia and those around the world,' Mr Hosokawa told veterans and relatives of war dead at the annual war memorial service.
Japanese historians, meanwhile, say they have unearthed documents proving that the Imperial Army conducted secret biological warfare in China during the war.
Researchers told journalists they had discovered journals compiled by the notorious Unit 731, which experimented on humans to create biological weapons, in the army's National Institute for Defence.
