(Update 11.45) The former prime minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, who was shot in the back early Friday morning (Greece time), during his speech at a Liberal Democratic Party event in the city of Nara, succumbed to his injuries.
The news was reported by the Reuters agency, citing the Japanese NHK.
Earlier, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said his predecessor was in a “very serious condition” after the gunman attacked him and called the attempt on his life a “barbaric act”.
Critical hours for former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who appears to have been shot during a speech in the west of the country. Abe was rushed to the hospital, where he is fighting for his life, but the news broadcast by the country’s television networks is not optimistic.
The fire brigade of the Japanese city of Nara (west) confirmed that former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who was shot by a man with a gun in his back, did not have any vital signs…
According to a source close to the fire department in the area, “former prime minister Abe appears to be in a state of cardiorespiratory arrest ,” public broadcaster NHK reported, using Japanese authorities’ terminology when someone’s death remains to be determined by a medical examiner.
According to a Japanese government spokesman, Mr. Abe was attacked by the gunman at around 11:30 a.m. (local time).
Abe’s rule as prime minister before he stepped down in 2020 brought stability to Japan. He helped Japan escape a cycle of deflation and worked to improve ties with its biggest trading partner, China, which were at their most hostile in decades when he took office.
Abe is perhaps best known for his plans to revive Japan’s faltering economy through unprecedented monetary easing and regulatory reform eventually dubbed “Abenomics”.
He is seen as a stabilizing factor who has consolidated power during his record-breaking run and has been able to overcome scandals, including one that came to light in 2017 over questionable government land allocations for schools given to associates of Abe and his wife Akie.
The Tribulation is commencing…
Please repent, carry your cross daily and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s Death on the Cross for payment for your sins.
