Numerous cities were divided into "concession territories": through an agreement with the Qing dynasty. Japan, Britain, the US, and a number of European powers (France, Germany, Belgium, Russia, Italy, Austria-Hungary) administered different sections of the city and strong fighting
between loyalist and rebels was still ongoing.
