安倍晋三被暗杀

TRANSCRIPT

Former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan, the longest-serving Japanese leader, has been assassinated. AP correspondent Donna Warder has a report.

Abe was just minutes into a speech at a train station in western Japan when shots rang out as captured by public broadcaster NHK. The video shows Abe collapsing on the street, with security guards running toward him. He holds his chest and his shirt is smeared with blood. Then security guards leap on top of the suspected gunman. What appears to be a handmade gun is seen on the ground. The 67-year-old Abe was pronounced dead at a hospital. I’m Donna Warder.

Reaction is pouring in from around the world.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who’s visiting Indonesia, called the assassination of Abe “shocking” and “profoundly disturbing,” and described him as a leader of “great vision.”

A spokesperson for the Chinese embassy in Japan said “former Prime Minister Abe made contributions towards improving China-Japan relations during his term.”

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi said “Italy is shocked by this terrible attack,” which hits “Japan and free democratic debate.”

Australia’s Prime Minister Anthony Albanese called Abe’s death “devastating news.” He said Mr. Abe was one of Australia’s “closest friends” on the world stage.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said he was “stunned and deeply saddened” by the news and French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted on Friday that “Japan has lost a great prime minister.”

U.S. President Joe Biden has ordered U.S. flags flown at half-staff in the United States until sunset on Sunday.
