CAPTION ONLY: JAPANESE REPARATIONS DRAW FIRE

A protester hurls eggs at the Japanese Embassy during a protest Friday in Seoul, South Korea, against Japan's latest war reparation program. The protest came two days after Japanese Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama said Japan would provide $1 billion in "friendship funds" for programs in Asia to atone for actions in World War II. Protesters also destroyed artifacts in an exhibit of Japanese art. The protesters included women who said they were former sex slaves and relatives of World War II victims.
