One of the two is seen holding a Japanese saber in the pictures and the other a bayonet with a flag wishing Japanese soldiers invincibility.

"It is an insult to those martyrs who died defending the city," the blogger wrote in the post.

The post was reposted more than 3,300 times by netizens and the official accounts of organizations including the Central Committee of the Communist Youth League.
