Japan Condemns Monument to Korean Assassin and "Terrorist"

When Ahn Jung-geun killed Hirobumi Ito in 1909, he immediately became a lasting icon in the history of Korean resistance to Japan, and he is celebrated as a hero to this day. Ito was a four-time prime minister of Japan and was serving as the first resident-governor of Japan’s colony in Korea when he was killed. Ahn shot him dead at Harbin train station in northeast China, and it is Harbin that is the focus of a fiery diplomatic fight over Ahn’s legacy.
