The Tokyo High Court yesterday rejected an appeal by 10 Chinese who demanded compensation for sufferings inflicted by the Japanese during World War II, state media reported. The appeal was filed after a previous ruling denied compensation to the plaintiffs who first filed suit in 1995. Meanwhile, at the suggestion of UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, China is considering a meeting with Japanese leaders at the April 22-23 Asia-Africa summit in Indonesia to resolve their differences, state media reported, citing Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang. In a goodwill gesture, China has offered to repair damages by protesters to Japan's Beijing embassy.
