KUNMING - The curator of a World War II museum in Southwest China's Yunnan province says he is considering suing reporters who exposed the presence of a Hello Kitty badge in a display.

A recent report about a badge depicting the fictional Japanese cartoon character in the Museum of Dianmian War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression in Heshun town, Tengchong county, has caused outcry among netizens.

Media in Kunming said a visitor noticed the badge bearing the image of Hello Kitty in the private museum over the National Day holiday. The museum signboard said: "The badge was for US Army Stilwell Road Guards".
