Kyodo: Ex-Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe shows no signs of life The assassination attempt on Abe was committed in the morning. He was shot during a performance
Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe shows no signs of life, Kyodo reported, citing a source in emergency services.
The assassination attempt on Abe was made on the morning of July 8. When the former prime minister was giving a campaign speech to the upper house of parliament in the city of Nara, he was shot at. A local resident, former military man Tetsuya Yamagami, was detained on suspicion of assassination, Nihon TV reported. According to the Nikkei, the ex-premier was diagnosed with cardiac arrest.
Abe served as prime minister in 2006–2007 and 2012–2020—longer than all his predecessors, and he explained the decision to resign due to health problems.
Nevertheless, Abe remained one of the most influential politicians in Japan: so, in November, he led the largest faction in the ruling Liberal Democratic Party.
