China Continues to Reveal Japanese Wartime Confessions

China's State Archives Administration on Sunday released the confession of a Japanese war criminal who says he killed 831 Chinese people during World War II.

Keiji Saganaka confessed that he killed people by burning, shooting and starving them. He also said he raped more than 30 Chinese women.

It is part of China’s efforts to highlight Japan's wartime atrocities amid disputes with the island country over history and territory. The administration has been posting one confession per day of 45 convicted Japanese war criminals since early this month.

The confessions have also been translated into English.
