A statue commemorating the Korean women who were sexually enslaved by Japan during World War II has been set up in a public square in Berlin.
This is the third statue in Germany honoring the victims and the first one in a public place.
It sits in Berlin's Kopfplatz, on a busy street corner and accompanied by a plaque detailing the victims' plight.
The statue of a gilded young woman sitting on a chair next to another empty one was set up at the initiative of a local Korean civic group, which went through a complicated bureaucratic process to gain the city's approval.
