Shinzo Abe, a 67years former Prime Minister of Japan, has been assassinated while giving a campaign speech in southern Japan.

Abe, 67, immediately collapsed and was seen bleeding before he was taken to hospital.

The suspected attacker reported to be a male in his 40s was tackled at the scene and arrested.

Abe in office in 2006-07 and 2012-20 remains the country’s longest-serving PM and best-known figure internationally.

There has been reactions from several global leaders, expressing their shock; outgoing UK PM Boris Johnson says he is “utterly appalled and saddened” by the attack.

This sad event is happening barely 24 hours after Boris Johnson resigned as UK Prime Minister.
