Japan PM Shinzo Abe visits Yasukuni WW2 shrine

Japan's prime minister has infuriated China and South Korea by visiting a shrine that honours Japan's war dead, including some convicted war criminals.

Shinzo Abe said his visit to Yasukuni was an anti-war gesture, but it has provoked a strong negative reaction from China.

Rupert Wingfield-Hayes reports from Tokyo.
