  National approval has been granted to turn the site of Japan's notorious Unit 731 in northeast China's Harbin into a cultural park to expose the crimes of the Japanese invaders.

  The park, intended to display artifacts of biological and chemical warfare, will be built upon the ruins of Unit 731, said a source with the Exhibition Hall of Crime Evidence of Japanese Germ Factory in Harbin, capital of Heilongjiang Province.

  The park will include a new exhibition hall displaying evidences of the criminality of the Japanese forces, said the source, adding that the new hall will neighbor the old one, which will be preserved.

  Construction of the park as well as the new exhibition hall is expected to begin within this year, according to the plan.

  Unit 731 was a top-secret biological and chemical warfare research base established in Harbin in 1935 as the nerve center of Japan's biological warfare in China and Southeast Asia during WWII.

  More than 10,000 people were killed there. Civilians and prisoners of war from China, the former Soviet Union, the Korean Peninsula and Mongolia all perished at the hands of Japanese scientists.

  The retreating Japanese invaders blew up the base when the Soviet Union army took Harbin in 1945.
