Japan has sent a seven-member team of officials to northeastern China to examine the area where two children were injured last month by a chemical weapon dumped by the Imperial Japanese Army at the end of World War II, a Japanese Embassy official said Monday.

The Tokyo-based officials went Sunday to the site in rural Dunhua, a city in Jilin Province, where the leaking mustard gas bomb was found and will stay through Saturday, the official said.
