Survivors of Japanese germ war in Jinhua
Updated: 2005-07-06 15:12

Jiang Hongcai, 81, looks at his rotten legs helplessly in Jinhua, east China's Zhejiang Province July 5, 2005. His legs began to rot after an anthrax and farcy infection due to the germ warfare by the invading Japanese during the World War II. Jiang is one of the surviving victims of the Japanese germ-warfare. Starting from October 1940, Japanese troops launched an extensive germ-warfare in China, spreading bacterium of plague, cholera, typhoid fever, anthrax and glanders in Jinhua and Quzhou of Zhejiang, killing more than 60,000 Chinese. Many survivors have been wrecked by the toadstool to this day. [newsphoto]
