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.
