Supporters of South Korean women forced into sexual slavery in Japan's military brothels during and after World War II have held a rally outside the Japanese embassy in Seoul.

Rallies in support of the victims - known as comfort women - have been held every week for 22 years.

They are calling for a formal apology and compensation for the thousands of women affected.
