A photo of a Korean serviceman (in the middle) and two Japanese Self Defense Forces members deployed to Iraq is being circulated on Korean websites. In the picture, they are smiling under a banner that reads, Dokdo belongs to Korea. The Japan Defense Agency made a protest to the Korean government and has launched an investigation into why they posed for the photo and how the photo was posted on the web.
