Taiwan considered asking China for aid, but in a previous disaster learned that there were political strings attached to such 'aid'. Thus they were probably happier to accept help from Japan.

Quote: "The third one refused to set off hers when she realised her parents and siblings were in the camp. She surrendered herself to the authorities. Ahmed said the woman told the military why she refused to detonate her explosives and warned them of further attacks to come in the remote region."
Brave lady. Good for her.

If this was voluntary there might be fewer accidents. One problem is that there are some students taking part who really do not want to be in there for one reason or another, and they are probably unable or afraid to say anything.

The news here is that the schools were bracing themselves.
There is no mention of any actual harassment happening post launch.
All of our arguments above are based on previous experience, as if the feared backlash had already happened.

Quote: "The de-facto maritime boundary between the two Koreas—the Northern Limit Line—is not recognised by Pyongyang, which argues it was unilaterally drawn by U.S.-led United Nations forces after the 1950-53 Korean War."
A valid argument from NK's point of view, not leaving them much sea to fish in.

We need to take care of the weak and feeble, not take advantage of them. (My mother's jewellery was taken from her room in the nursing home in the UK. Replaced clumsily with cheap plastic costume jewellery.)

Yes, I was about to post what fishy said above. Not only did they take his whole salary, giving him just 10,000 a month pocket money in return, but he had to look after them both as well. Apparently he was so exhausted that he had asked for leave from his job.
In no way does this excuse what he did, but there are sometimes extenuating factors.

"Senbazuru", "Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes", etc. This movie has been made at least twice before. Here's hoping this new one has a fresh take on the story.

Having your oxygen cut off and struggling to breathe as someone you do not trust is suffocating you. Laughing at your pancic as they pour water into your lungs, dip your head in a tub, and/or drape wet sheets over your mouth and nose? Your heart hammering overtime trying to extract air from your lungs. That is torture, and it is truly horrible.

They found four mobile phones in his apartment. Perhaps they may find a lead there.
In previous recent famous cases, (eg ASKA) lawyers have picked holes in the police evidence, so the cops wanted a watertight case this time. Belt and braces. He's denied it successfully many times before. So the cops took a year of careful observation. Not worth the risk of failure with such a famous person. Check his garbage. Catch him at home with a hypodermic in his hand and 0.1 gm of meth open on the table (three shots' worth). Check his urine. He has been generally cooperative, though he won't name his supplier(s).
There are suggestions that Kiyohara probably wanted to get caught. A previous stay in hospital was not enough of an incentive to quit, it is being said in the press.
