Japan: Deadly Knife Attack at Facility for Disabled Kills 19


At least 19 people have been killed and 26 injured in a deadly knife attack at a facility for the disabled outside of Tokyo, Japan.

According to CNN.com, the attack is one of Japan’s deadliest mass killings since World Warr II.

The suspect in the attack, 26-year-old Satoshi Uematsu, worked at the facility for the disabled until last February. He is thought to be mentally unstable.

Uematsu reportedly broke into the facility around 2 a.m. on Tuesday and began his stabbing spree which killed nine men and 10 women.

The motivation for the attack is unknown, but Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga confirmed that it was not an act of terrorism and had no connections to ISIS or other jihadist groups.

The 26 injured individuals have been hospitalized. Thirteen are “severely” injured, ten sustained moderate injuries, and three suffered minor injuries.

Mass killings are rare in Japan and gun ownership is highly regulated. The incident has shocked the country and the small town where it took place.

Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
