Another Korean woman who was forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese Army in World War II died on Saturday.
With the death of 94-year-old Kwak Ye-nam, who was just 19 when she was forced to serve Japanese troops, only 22 Korean victims remain alive.
Korea and Japan signed an agreement on compensation for the victims in 2015, but the Moon Jae-in administration scrapped the deal, saying that it was struck without the victims' consent and lacked a sincere apology from Japan.
