Japanese politician Nobuo Kishi has been the country’s defense minister since September 2020. He represents the Liberal Democratic Party in the House of Representatives.

Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe passes away after being shot during an election campaign.

Shinzo Abe, Japan’s longest-serving politician, and former prime minister passed away on Friday after being shot while running for a parliamentary seat, startling a nation where political unrest is uncommon and firearms are strictly regulated.

As he talked at a dull traffic island in the western city of Nara, a guy approached Abe, 67, and fired at him from behind with what seemed to be a handmade rifle, according to Japanese media.

He was shot around five and a half hours later, at 5:03 p.m. (08:03 GMT), according to the hospital that tried to save him. Abe bled to death, according to a doctor, from two severe wounds, one of which was on the right side of his neck. When he was brought in, he had no vital signs.

Prime Minister Fumio Kishida spoke before Abe’s passing, denouncing the shooting in the “strongest terms” as shocked Japanese and foreign leaders looked on.
