http://rss.topix.net - Mon, 08/28/2017 - 21:51

Another South Korean woman who was forced into sexual servitude by Japan during World War II died Monday, a civic group said, reducing the total number of the country's surviving victims to 36. The Korean Council for the Women Drafted for Military Sexual Slavery by Japan said that Ha Sang-sook died of sepsis at 9:10 a.m. at the age of 89. Her memorial altar is set up at Kyung Hee University Hospital in eastern Seoul. Ha was forced to serve at an overseas military brothel in 1944 when she was only 16. After Korea was liberated from Japan's 36-year colonial rule in 1945, she lived in China for some six decades.
