Deadly Stabbing on Japan Train

A man has been arrested on suspicion of killing a passenger and injuring two others in a knife attack on a bullet train in Japan, police say. The fatal stabbing occurred at about 22:00 local time (13:00 GMT) on Saturday on board a Shinkansen train traveling from Tokyo to Osaka, BBC reported. Police detained the suspect after storming the carriage when the vehicle stopped at Odawara station. The train was carrying more than 800 passengers at the time of the incident. Officials say a male passenger taken to hospital with neck wounds later died from his injuries. The other two victims are both women, according to local media. The suspect, named as Ichiro Kojima, 22, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, a local police spokesman told AFP. Kojima told police he had picked victims at random and had been armed with “multiple bladed objects” on the train, Japanese broadcaster NHK reports. Witnesses said passengers were in tears as they attempted to flee in panic. The reason behind the attack has not been determined yet.
