    Port Arthur massacre : how many Chinese were killed by the Japanese ?

    There seems to be some differences in Japanese version (200 to 6000 killed) and English version (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 mentions that 20,000 people were killed.
