Japan PM sends ritual offering to Yasukuni shrine for war dead

TOKYO (Reuters) - Prime Minister Shinzo Abe sent an offering to a shrine for war dead on Friday, the anniversary of Japan's World War Two defeat, but did not make a personal visit to the shrine seen in China and South Korea as a symbol of Tokyo's wartime militarism. Koichi Hagiuda, an aide to Abe and a lawmaker in the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, told reporters at Tokyo's Yasukuni Shrine that he had made the offering on Abe's behalf. Visits to Yasukuni Shrine by top politicians outrage China and South Korea because the shrine honours 14 Japanese leaders convicted as war criminals by an Allied tribunal, along with war dead. #facebook #United States #India #Tokyo #Japan #Arabic #Middle East #South Korea #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion
