The news: Three persons were conscious after being injured in the morning after another student attacked them with a bladed object as they gathered to take their entrance exam, according to public broadcaster NHK.

  • According to the Asahi newspaper, the suspected assailant, a 17-year-old high school student, was apprehended.
  • This weekend, 500,000 high school students in Japan will take the annual university admission tests in hundreds of locations across the country.
  • The Metropolitan Police Department of Tokyo stated it was unable to comment on the attack’s specifics or confirm any arrests.

What happened: In Japan, violent crimes are uncommon, although there have been a spate of knife attacks by assailants who are unknown to the victims.

  • A man dressed in Batman’s Joker costume slashed more than a dozen people on a train carriage in Tokyo in October, sending passengers running down aisles and rushing out windows to escape. Several individuals were injured in a knife attack on a Tokyo commuter train a few months ago.
