Breaking News

A park to commemorate the Chinese soldiers and members of the U.S. "Flying Tigers" air squadron who fought in the Second World War is to be set up in southwest China's Yunnan Province.

The wooded park will cover 167 hectares and boast a peace gate, a friendship monument, a memorial wall and memorials to wartime figures.

The park would be near an abandoned military airport that hosted American planes during WWII, about 20 kilometers from downtown Kunming, capital of Yunnan, said Wang Chengzhong of the park's construction administration committee.
