Kowloon

Kowloon

Kowloon Walled City was an ungoverned, densely populated de jure Chinese enclave within the boundaries of Kowloon City, Hong Kong. Originally a Chinese military fort, the walled city became an enclave after the New Territories were leased to the UK by China in 1898. Its population increased dramatically following the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong during World War II. By 1990, the walled city contained 50,000 residents within its 2.6-hectare (6.4-acre) borders. From the 1950s to the 1970s, it was controlled by local triads and had high rates of prostitution, gambling, and drug abuse.

La ville fortifiée de Kowloon était une enclave chinoise non gouvernée et densément peuplée située dans les limites de Kowloon City, Hong Kong. À l'origine un fort militaire chinois, la ville fortifiée est devenue une enclave après que les Nouveaux Territoires ont été loués au Royaume-Uni par la Chine en 1898. Sa population a augmenté de façon spectaculaire suite à l'occupation japonaise de Hong Kong pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. En 1990, la ville fortifiée comptait 50 000 habitants dans ses limites de 2,6 hectares (6,4 acres). Des années 1950 aux années 1970, elle était contrôlée par des triades locales et avait des taux élevés de prostitution, de jeu et de toxicomanie.
