The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) has completed a
documentary film about Japan's use of Korean sexual slaves in World
War II, the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported
The DPRK accused Japan of forcing a large number of Korean women
to become sex slaves after occupying the Korean Peninsula, quoting
many documents and testimonies from survivors.
"There will be no future for Japan unless it makes apologies and
compensation for its past crimes," the KCNA quoted the film
The film, titled "Most Hideous Crimes against Humanity in the
20th Century," was produced by the Korean Documentary and
Scientific Film Studio.
It is estimated more than 700,000 Asian women including
between100,000 and 200,000 Korean women were forced to become sex
slaves, or comfort women, for Japanese soldiers in World War
Surviving sex slaves have all along been demanding an apology
and compensation from the Japanese government, but in most cases
their demands are turned down.
The Japanese government is yet to make an official apology for
the war-time sexual slavery issue even though many countries
including the United States have urged Tokyo to do so.
