Japanese pay tribute to late Korean independence fighter

Hitoshi Suzuki, formerly a middle school teacher in the Japanese city of Yokohama and now a peace activist, speaks during an interview with Yonhap News Agency in Seoul on March 26, 2019. Suzuki was one of 20 Japanese figures who visited South Korea to take part in a memorial for Korean independence fighter Ahn Jung-geun the same day to mark the 109th anniversary of Ahn's death. The independence fighter, under the Japanese colonial rule of Korea, was executed at a prison in China by Japanese authorities after being arrested in 1909 for assassinating Ito Hirobumi, the Japanese resident-general in Korea, at a railway station in Harbin, a city in China's Heilongjiang Province.
