A joint operation by the Japanese Abandoned Chemical Weapons office and China's Office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for Chemical Weapons Abandoned by Japan in China started on September 5 aiming to clean up chemical weapons, including mustard gas and lewisite, left behind by Japan's army after its 13-year occupation of northeastern China before the end of World War II. The abandoned arms include bombs, shells and lethal chemicals. REUTERS/Andrew Wong
