Massaker in Japan in der jüngsten Zeit

July 19, 2019 - Die Polizei untersucht das zerstörte Animationsstudio und Gebäude in Kyoto, wo ein Mann - wütend wegen angeblichen Diebstahls geistigen Eigentums - Feuer gelegt hat. Dabei sind 33 Menschen ums Leben gekommen, der schwerste Massenmord in zwanzig Jahren.

Japan is among the world’s safest countries, but has a grisly record of mass violence.

Witness accounts and reports suggested the man had a grudge against Kyoto Animation

The company founded in 1981 and better known as KyoAni made a mega-hit anime series about high school girls and trained aspirants to the craft.

The shocking attack left another 36 people injured, some critically. It drew an outpouring of grief for the dead and injured, most of them workers at the studio.
