South Korea court orders Japan to compensate former sex slaves

A South Korean court ordered Japan on Friday to compensate 12 women who were forced to work as sex slaves in wartime Japanese brothels, in a ruling that could rekindle diplomatic and history feuds between the two countries.
The Seoul Central District Court ruled that Japan should pay 100 million won ($91,000) to each of the victims.

For South Korea’s few surviving comfort women, this case represents some justice after more than 75 years.
