Japanese police have confirmed that two bodies dumped in the mountain woods in Hadano, Kanagawa prefecture, are the Chinese sisters who disappeared in Yokohama on July 6, the Chinese embassy in Tokyo has said.

Autopsies showed that Chen Baolan, 25, and Chen Baoling, 22, were strangled, Japan's Kyodo News agency quoted police as saying. There were also bruises on their bodies.

The women probably died in early July. Their room, with their purses and money, showed no signs of fighting. The door was locked, police said.
