China Condemns Japanese PM For Paying Homage to "Devils" at War Shrine

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited the Yasukuni Shrine yesterday


(Reuters)—Chinese newspapers denounced Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Friday, describing his visit to the Yasukuni Shrine for Japan's war dead as paying homage to "devils" and warning that China could crush "provocative militarism".

On Thursday, Abe visited the shrine in Tokyo where Japanese leaders convicted as war criminals by an Allied tribunal after World War Two are honored along with those who died in battle.
