A group of 40 Chinese who were wounded or lost family members in Japan’s bombings of Chongqing, China, during the war sued the government for damages Thursday, seeking a 10 million yen each.

They also demanded the government apologize for the repeated bombings, which occurred between 1938 and 1943, saying they were war crimes that violated the Hague Convention, which bans attacks on unarmed cities.
