What happened on August 04, 2003?


Historical Events

  • Five Japanese mustard gas bombs were accidentally dug out by construction workers in Qihar, Heilongjiang Province and People's Republic of China during the Sino-Japanese War (1937-1945). Two bombs are destroyed, and 43 gas poisons are released. One of them died 19 days later. Japan accepts responsibility a week later and sends compensation and doctors to China.
  • The Episcopal Church in America's clergy and laity voted in favor of an openly homosexual bishop. It is expected that the vote will be confirmed by the bishops' colllegium. However, this is delayed due last-minute independent allegations of misconduct or intense conservative opposition.
  • SCO v. IBM Linux lawsuit: Reuters reported that Red Hat plans to sue SCO to prove that SCO's claims against Linux are untrue.
