A bridge to nowhere but the middle of the the Yalu River which separates the North Korean border town of Siniuju (opposite) from Dandong in northeast China's Liaoning province is lit up on November 24, in Dandong.

A bridge to nowhere but the middle of the the Yalu River which seperates the North Korean border town of Siniuju (opposite) from Dandong in northeast China's Liaoning province is lit up on November 24, 2010 in Dandong. Lit up everynight is the Yalu River bridge, also known as the no-name bridge, which remains standing only halfway across the river after it was bombed by the US in 1950 during the Korean War and eventually dismantled from its own half by North Korea shortly after the Korean War armistice. Chinese state media coverage of the Korean peninsula shelling incident has avoided criticising Beijing's close ally Pyongyang and even said the episode showed North Korea's "toughness" after the reclusive communist state fired a deadly barrage of artillery shells onto a South Korean island on November 23 in one of the most serious border incidents since the 1950-1953 war, sparking global condemnation of Pyongyang.
