The city of Nanjing has canceled a commemorative China-Japan judo event scheduled for this week in the wake of Nagoya Mayor Takashi Kawamura’s controversial remarks about the 1937 massacre there carried out by the Imperial Japanese Army, sources said.

The event, scheduled for Friday, was to feature a ceremony marking the second anniversary of the construction of the China-Japan Friendship Judo Stadium in Nanjing.
