Former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Japan's longest-serving leader, died on Friday (8 July 2022) hours after he was shot while campaigning for a parliamentary election, shocking a country in which political violence is rare and guns are tightly controlled. A man opened fire on Abe, 67, from behind with an apparently homemade gun as he spoke at a drab traffic island in the western city of Nara, Japanese media reported. It was the first assassination of a sitting or former Japanese premier since the days of prewar militarism in 1936.
