There seems to be some differences in Japanese version (http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%97%85%E9%A0%86%E8%99%90%E6%AE%BA%E4%BA%8B%E4%B B%B6) (200 to 6000 killed) and English version (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_Arthur_massacre_%281894%29) (60,000 killed)
Which one do you believe??

I don't have time to read the entire English entry, but is there anything in particular that stands out?

That's a typical downplaying of atrocities on the Japanese side. The person who wrote the English version also seemed to have overestimated the number of casualties. The Chinese version (http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%97%85%E9%A0%86%E5%A4%A7%E5%B1%A0%E6%AE%BA) mentions that 20,000 people were killed.
