    Mr Abe was shot dead on Friday while delivering a speech ahead of a parliamentary election, when a man armed with a homemade gun opened fire at him from behind.

    According to reports “Mr Abe, 67, was rushed to the Nara Medical University Hospital in Kashihara City and showed no vital signs, according to the local police and emergency services.

    “The Nara City Fire Department confirmed that the former Japanese PM was in cardio-pulmonary arrest before being taken to the hospital.

    Meanwhile, Police have arrested Tetsuya Yamagami, 41, a former member of the Maritime Self-Defense Force (MSDF), according to local media, on suspicion of attempted murder and retrieved what appeared to be a handmade gun from the vicinity where the former prime minister was shot in Nara.
