Japanese police admit that flaws in the security of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe resulted in his assassination.
This article by the BBC makes the following points:
- A gunman opened fire on Abe at a political campaign event. The crime has profoundly shocked Japan.
- Mr Abe was shot with a homemade gun.
- Police say the suspect, Tetsuya Yamagami, 41, held a grudge against a 'specific organisation'.
- Japanese media quoted sources close to the investigation, saying that Yamagami believed Abe was linked to a religious group that had financially ruined his mother.
- Several other handmade guns and explosives were later found at the suspect's home.
- Gun violence is extremely rare in Japan, where handguns are banned.
