Another South Korean victim of Japan's wartime sexual slavery has died.

The Korean Council for Justice and Remembrance for the Issues of Military Sexual Slavery by Japan said the woman, identified only by her surname Yoon, passed away Sunday afternoon in Seoul at the age of 92.

Born in North Chungcheong Province in 1929, she is said to have been sent to Japan at the age of 13 to initially work at a textile factory before being snatched away by the military.

Historians estimate that up to 200,000 women, mostly from Korea, were forced to work in frontline brothels for Japanese troops during the Second World War.

There are now only 14 registered surviving victims left, according to government data.
