South Koreans are marking 30 years since they began weekly protests against Japan’s wartime sex slavery scandal.
The protesters say they want a sincere apology and compensation for thousands of women who were victims of human and sex trafficking.
Seoul and Tokyo reached an agreement in 2015 and Japan agreed to pay almost $9m to victims and their families.
But last year, a South Korean court and the Unification Ministry concluded it was not enough – increasing tensions between the two nations
How’s this affecting ties between Tokyo and Seoul?
