Hatoyama’s wish


Former Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama kneels to pray in front of a memorial at the Seodaemun Prison in Seoul on Wednesday. The prison was used during the colonial period to hold Korean independence activists and is now serving as a history museum focused on the colonial rule of Japan. During a talk with reporters, Hatoyama said current Japanese leader Shinzo Abe must include an apology for Japan’s colonial rule over Korea in his upcoming statement to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II.
