    A South Korean bus company has angered Japan by carrying statues of so-called comfort women around the capital, Seoul.

    The term is used for the estimated 200,000 girls and women in Asia who were sexually enslaved during the Japanese occupation of countries in the region between 1910 and 1945.

    Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen reports from Seoul.
