One more victim of Japan's wartime sex slavery dies Updated: 2014-06-09 06:27:27 KST

Now to some sad news
Another Korean survivor of Japan's military sexual slavery has passed away.
Bae Chun-hee died at the age of 91, according to the House of Sharing on Sunday.
The group runs a shelter for women who were forced into sexual slavery for Japanese troops during World War Two.
Bae's death leaves only 54 surviving victims in the country.
Initially, there were 237 women on the list of government-registered former sex slaves.
Historians estimate that up to 200-thousand comfort women, mostly from Korea and China, were forced into sexual slavery during the war.
Korea has been demanding Tokyo apologize to and compensate the victims.
Japan says the issue was resolved through a 1965 treaty that normalized bilateral ties between the two countries.
