Taiwan activists demand Japan apologise over sex slaves
TAIPEI (AFP) - Around 200 Taiwanese activists protested outside Japan's de facto embassy in Taipei on Wednesday, demanding Tokyo apologise and compensate women forced to work as sex slaves during World War II.
The demonstrators, largely from women's groups, held portraits of Japanese politicians including Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Osaka mayor Toru Hashimoto marked "shameless" and "hypocritical".
"Justice for all comfort women", read one placard, while another demanded: "Return my dignity".
Women's groups in Taiwan demonstrate against Tokyo every year around the anniversary of Japan's wartime surrender.
