Memorial honoring Filipino comfort women gone

This photo taken on April 28, 2018 shows a backhoe at the site where a memorial statue for World War II "comfort women", who were made sex slaves for Japanese troops during the conflict, once stood in Manila. Advocacy groups voiced outrage on April 29 after a memorial to women forced to work as sex slaves to Japanese soldiers during World War II was taken down in Manila.
