Protesting against Japan's distortion of history

Protestors rally in front of the Japanese Embassy in Seoul on July 31, 2015, urging Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to stop distorting historical facts. Historians estimate that up to 200,000 women, mainly from Korea, which was a Japanese colony from 1910 to 1945, were forced to work in front-line brothels for Japanese soldiers during World War II. Japan, however, has long attempted to water down the atrocity. (Yonhap)
