Koreans lose Yasukuni shrine case

Breaking News

A group of Koreans who want their dead relatives' names removed from Japan's controversial Yasukuni war shrine have lost their case in a Tokyo court.

The Koreans, whose relatives were drafted into Japan's army while Korea was a Japanese colony, want the names to be removed and to be paid damages.

But the court ruled that the government had been correct to give the names of war dead to the shrine.
