On July 14, 2022, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida blamed inadequate police protection for the death of the country's former leader Shinzo Abe. Abe was shot on July 8 by a lone gunman during an outdoor election campaign event in the western city of Nara. His assassination shocked a nation known for its low crime rate. Officials at Japan's National Public Safety Commission and National Police Agency are investigating what went wrong. The 41-year-old suspect, Tetsuya Yamagami, was arrested immediately at the site and is being held for questioning.
