A policeman patrols as the "Peace Monument" representing Korean comfort women is placed on a pavement across a road in front of the Japanese embassy in Seoul December 16, 2011. The monument with her body covered by a cap, mufflers and blankets put on by people was installed by a civic group on Wednesday when former comfort women held the1,000th "Wednesday Rally" demanding Japan's apology and compensation for forcing hundreds of Korean women into sex slavery for their soldiers during the Second World War. Tokyo has asked for the monument's removal, but Seoul said that it's beyond their authority, according to local media. South Korean President Lee Myung-bak will visit Japan this weekends to meet Japan's Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda. The former sex slaves have held the weekly protest in front of the Japanese Embassy in Seoul since January 1992. REUTERS/Lee Jae-Won (SOUTH KOREA - Tags: POLITICS CONFLICT CIVIL UNREST)
