On 8 July 2022, Shinzo Abe, former prime minister of Japan, was shot in the chest during a campaign speech near Yamato-Saidaiji Station in Nara at approximately 11:30 Japan Standard Time.[1][2]

According to The Guardian and various other sources, Abe was making a speech for the upcoming elections when he was shot up to three times from behind with a shotgun.[3][4] Abe suffered from a cardiopulmanary arrest and was transported to a local hospital with a chest wound, reported to have no vital signs at the hospital as of 12:07 JST.[1][5] Tetsuya Yamagami, a 42-year-old male from Nara Prefecture, was immediately apprehended on suspicion of attempted murder.

The Religious Cult Secretly Running Japan

Nippon Kaigi, a small cult with some of the country’s most powerful people, aims to return Japan to pre-WWII imperial ‘glory.’ Sunday’s elections may further its goal.

Japan: Shinzo Abe’s Government Has a Thing About Hitler. It Likes Him.

Reviving imperial glory has always been an Abe obsession. But teaching ‘Mein Kampf’ in the schools? Japan joins the roster of threatened democracies.
