S. Korea allows new 'comfort women' statue

The southern South Korean port of Busan said Friday it would allow activists to place a statue symbolising victims of Japanese wartime sex slavery outside the city’s Japanese consulate. The municipal authorities had previously removed the “comfort woman” statue, but changed track after Japan’s hawkish defence minister offered prayers at a controversial war shrine in Tokyo. Tomomi Inada’s visit on Thursday to the Yasukuni Shrine, which honors millions of mostly Japanese war dead — but also senior military and political figures convicted of war crimes — swiftly drew flack from China and South Korea.
