    It's interesting that Ekita is described as a "militant" and not a "terrorist".

    True - likely for the same reason you rarely read the Aum terrorists described as such. Perhaps Japanese folk simply can't be terrorists!

    Well done Halil-Japan and Saudi Arabia, both look like going through in the group. Australia is looking very poor, they were incredibly lucky in that game not to lose to Iraq. Unless they string together a few wins now - with some very ordinary players, compared to years gone by, it must be said - they will probably miss out on Russia. Soccer in Australia has sadly gone backwards in the last few years.

    Londoners came through years of IRA terror, and now over a decade of islamic-terror, in a dignified manner - and actions by scum like this individual will not break them. I know the area well, having worked nearby for two years, and may life get back to normal very soon.

    This is why Trump won, and I fear it is too late for Europe

    EVERY sane person would feel far more in danger in the U.S than pretty well everywhere in Europe. Statistics back this up. There are mass kilings in the US pretty much every week. Who would feel safe living there, or even visiting? Grubs like Trump Jr. - if they had a shred of honesty - would admit this.

    Rest in Peace to the poor innocent victims.

    Rest in Peace to all the innocent children, women and men civilians this ex IRA commander murdered, directly or indirectly. Gerry Adams (and also the killers on the Protestant side) have a spot reserved downstairs, with McGuinness...

    Rest in Peace to all the victims of this shocking case of terrorism. Having read a little and watched some documentaries, it seems sadly the authorities had plenty of intelligence on this terror group, but were unable to prevent the attacks. The tragedy is that many hundreds of victims were that day rendered disabled by the nerve gas and still today, unable to function without 24-hour care. Heartbreaking for their families - and it must be equally frustrating that none of the terror group have yet had their death penalties served.

    Quite disturbing for anyone in Japan who consumes fish processed here (ie. most folk!). To be honest, though, one could do an inspection on just about any area in Japan that has been industrialised for many decades, and find unacceptably high levels of contaminants and pollution. I hope they can find a safe place for re-locating the market, but the odds are not good.

    Who are we to criticise what policies are installed in countries that aren't our own, however much our own consciences might be offended

    In the present story it is not "we" who are criticising this alarming move - it is elected politicians in Duterte's own party. And they are being punished for merely expressing opposition. If The Philippines ever did have any semblance of democracy, let it be known it is now non-existent.

    one of Duterte’s top legislative priorities is a bill to lower the age of criminal responsibility from 15 to nine.

    Nine years old?!

    Amazing to see a group of young Japanese ladies with no hair colouring! They look great. Good luck to them - they will need it having read a little about the treatment of employees in that organisation.

    No contest. Kyoto, hands down. Even as a tourist I can still find pockets of beauty and serenity, but it is becoming harder. Kobe is quite scenic, too. As for Tokyo, the roads and rail-lines leading out of it are very nice!

    “I am very perplexed as to why I am attracting so much attention,” she said

    If this unelected woman wants to regularly engage in political issues through the media, she should expect the attention and criticism that comes with it - especially when revealing her nationalistic streak. It's that simple.

    How many of the "Israel" team are actually Israeli? I admit I am a WBC novice, but I suspect just about all are American born and bred. Wasnt there also a farcical "Italy" team a few editions back which was actually almost all American?

    I doubt very much that anyone in a sushi shop has "crunched" frozen sushi in Japan

    Yubaru, a couple of times I have had the displeasure of crunching into half thawed tuna sashimi at a well-known kaiten-zushi chain here. Didnt complain on account of everything being dirt cheap (and not bad tasting) anyway! Cant imagine it happening in any high-end joint, though.

    It's pretty clear Abe idolises Trump the way he is still banging on about his brush with fame.

    Koike has achieved more in her short time as Governor to start the enormous task of fixing up Tokyo, than crooked Ishihara did in his entire rotten era. The truth is finally coming out about his years of corruption, and someone isn't happy. Back to the retirement home with you!

    Mistakes like this happen when you combine very old presenters like Beatty - and copious amounts of alcohol! Gotta feel for the producers of La la land.....

    The Abes are in damage control now theyve both been caught in the headlights.

    I just pity the brainwashed kids in that so called "school". Not much hope for them - its only a matter of before they are shaving their heads, driving around in black vans and spitting out bile and hatred through loudspeakers.

    Japan, with no terrorism

    Perhaps you weren't here in the 1990s, but the multiple terror attacks in Japan during that time that destroyed so many lives, will live forever in our memories. And they weren't even by muslims, funnily enough.

    There are major human rights issues Japan - and most modern nations - need to address seriously, and Amnesty has raised a few of them. Lets not shoot the messenger.

    Mr and Mrs Abe helping out another of their nationalist buddies? Well, who'd have thought!

    I hope the be proven horribly wrong, but the smirking Abe's seem to be made of teflon when it comes to the press and public. I suspect he will form an "independent" committee that unanimously finds they had "no knowledge" whatsoever of this grubby deal. And I expect scary consequences for the brave person who leaked this transaction...

    Horrible old gutless scumbag. I hope he has lost any remaining use of his likely inadequately-sized member.

    I hope the poor nurse has somehow recovered mentally and could return to work. As an aside - shouldn't the clinic also be investigated for doing business with Yakuza? Wasn't this supposedly made illegal a few years back?
