 On Saturday, there was an explosion while Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida was giving a speech in Wakayama. As a result, he had to be evacuated from the area for safety reasons.


 As per reports from Japanese media sources, an individual has been arrested in relation to the incident, and the country's Prime Minister has been confirmed as unharmed. The news agency Reuters has also published images of the suspect in question, depicting a young person whose identity has not been disclosed, being apprehended by police officers dressed in uniform.

A city council member who was at the scene told NHK that a "cylindrical silver object" had flown "about two meters in front of me" shortly before the explosion was heard.


Another eyewitness also reported seeing "a silver cylinder," saying it "was thrown and then shone a bit before a big sound was heard."


Reports from Japan Times state that an alleged smoke or pipe bomb was hurled at Kishida while he was giving a speech in support of a candidate from the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) for an upcoming by-election. Thankfully, Kishida escaped the incident unscathed.

However, this incident may trigger memories of the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who was killed under similar circumstances in July of last year. Abe was also campaigning for a political event when he was attacked by Tetsuya Yamagami, who used a homemade gun and held a grudge against a religious group that Abe had ties with.
