South Korean former "comfort woman" Gil Won-ok is helped by a volunteer as she heads to the weekly Wednesday protest demanding an apology and compensation from the Japanese government in Seoul, South Korea, July 22, 2015. “Comfort women� is the Japanese euphemism for women who were forced into prostitution and sexually abused at Japanese military brothels before and during World War Two. According to her testimony to South Korean researchers, Gil, who was born in what is now North Korea in 1927, was taken to a Japanese military brothel in China in 1940. She caught syphilis and developed tumours as she worked as a "comfort woman". A Japanese military doctor removed her uterus leaving her unable to bear children. Gil said she wants to receive apology from Japanese government.

The university is performing a battery of medical tests on the mummified bodies of three unrelated ancients to find out why they died. They hope the tests will give a snapshot of their lifestyle and give insights into the evolution of diseases such as cancer and syphilis.
