S. Koreans honor Kim Bok-dong, late victim of Japan's sexual slavery Updated: 2019-02-01 13:30:53 KST

The South Korean people paid their respects today to the late Kim Bok-dong, a woman who was sexually enslaved by the Japanese military during World War Two and later became an iconic activist for justice.
Kim died earlier this week at the age of 93.
Hundreds of citizens gathered in front of the Japanese embassy in Seoul, as part of her funeral procession, where her coffin was brought for a sending-off.
For decades, Kim had demanded that Japan apologize sincerely for its crimes and that it compensate its victims.
With Kim's death, there are only 23 survivors of Japan's sexual slavery still living, raising concerns that time is running out for them to get a sincere apology.
