southern Taiwan had to call off a plan to present a commemorative graduation certificate Thursday to a 93-year-old who was forced into sexual slavery by Japanese forces during World War II, the school said Wednesday.

To prevent disturbing her, the school will conduct the conferral after the “Ah-ma” (which means grandma in Taiwanese) is feeling better, the spokesman said.     [FULL  STORY]
