{March 16, 2011}   “Kill the foreign devils!”

In the early 20th century, foreign influence over China was great, which caused considerable unrest within the country.

In 1900, many foreigners and Chinese Christian converts were besieged in Peking by the Boxers who were supported by Imperial troops.
