    Japan has rejected South Korea’s objection to a Tokyo Olympics map, which marks a group of South Korean-controlled islands as Japanese territory.

    As Andrea Nierhoff reports, neither a formal diplomatic protest nor calls by some South Korean politicians to boycott the games have been enough to sway officials.
