DAILY MAIL (LONDON) -- Military brothels existed across the Asia Pacific region in areas occupied by the Japanese forces, including China, the Korean Peninsula and a large part of Southeast Asia.

The women were forced to have sex with up to 50 Japanese soldiers a day as they were raped and sexually assaulted.

Though around 80 percent were Korean, women from China, Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Burma and the Pacific islands were also used as comfort women, according to a San Francisco State University report.
