This is my first post to the forums.. but here goes

Hi, we're learning about the Manchurian Crisis in school, and we got some printed out notes the other day giving a chronological order of events.

The part that I'm not sure about on them is that "the Manchurian Railway, in Korea"... But surely this doesn't make sense, as Manchuria is in China! (And our textbook backs that up) But I might be wrong - as it might just be the railway that's in a different country as well...
So - Is the Manchurian Railway in Korea or China?

Thanks for solving my problem in advance!!

The Manchurian Railway is in China. The Manchurian Crisis has nothing to do with Korea, the dispute was between Japan and China. Japan claimed a "bombing" happened but there was no evidence of this and used this opportunity to "bring order" to Manchuria. Japanese troops moved in and renamed Manchuria "Manchukuo".
