S Korean 'comfort women' still waiting for apology after 22 years

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.
