On Sept 18, 1931, Japanese troops, in a staged event, detonated a blast on a section of the railway in northern Shenyang. They falsely accused the Chinese and used this as a pretext to attack a garrison in the Beidaying area of the city on the same night. The incident was the start of the Japanese military occupation of Northeast China, then known as Manchuria.
