The President of the Republic, Luis Abinader, lamented this Friday the death of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
“On behalf of the Dominican people, we express our condolences and solidarity with the Government, the Japanese people and the family of the former Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, for his tragic death,” he wrote on his Twitter account.
Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was shot dead while giving a speech at a campaign event in the Nara region.
Prime Minister Fumio Kishida confirmed that the former president was admitted to a hospital in a “critical condition” and that the doctors did everything possible to save him.
Hours later the death was confirmed: “The bullet pierced his heart,” said those responsible for the health center.
Likewise, Kishida condemned the violence with which the attack was perpetrated.
The videos of the attack show a middle-aged man who, after executing at least two shots, is detained by security personnel.
