Last Chinese ‘comfort woman’ to sue Japan dies

The last living “comfort woman” of the 16 Chinese who sued Japan since the 1990s died in North China’s Shanxi province without receiving a sought-after apology from the Japanese government, Shanxi Evening News reported on Friday. Zhang Xiantu, 89, had been fighting for an apology from the Japanese government since 2000 when she went to Japan for the first time to testify as a victim and witness of Chinese women who were sexually enslaved by Japanese soldiers during World War II.
