Japan experiencing daily knife attacks

Posted by jtsmyth8 on July 31, 2008

A man was stabbed and seriously injured at a suburban office north of Tokyo on Wednesday, police said, in the latest in an almost daily series of such attacks that have unnerved the relatively crime-free country.

A 51-year-old unemployed man was arrested on the spot in Niiza, about 30 km north of Tokyo, a police spokesman said.

On Monday, a woman stabbed and hurt six people at a station in Hiratsuka, south-west of Tokyo, in what domestic media said was a random attack carried out out in rage after a failed suicide. (story)
