Burning Of People Ordered By Tokyo
SAN FRANCISCO (ANS) - The destruction of Manila by the Japanese Imperial marines followed direct orders from Tokyo. Brig. Gen. carols P. Romulo, resident commissioner on the Philippines said last week, "the rape of Nanking was a primeval instinct of the Japanese asserting itself. Manila's destruction was studied and systematic. In the walled city of Intramuros, the Japanese herded 1,700 male civilians, doused the fort with kerosene and burned it. Only three escaped. Women and children streamed through a wall-breach from United States artillery and the Japanese mowed them down with machine guns. We have captured documents to prove this was all on direct orders from Tokyo. I am going to read them on the floor of Congress."
