‘I didn’t see him that day’: Japanese journalist says he didn’t witness attack October 20, 2021 October 20, 2021 admin

JAPANESE NEWSMAN/GETTY IMAGES The Japanese newspaper the Nikkan, which reported on the attack on the Japanese embassy in Washington, DC, on Wednesday, quoted a former journalist as saying that he saw a man carrying a weapon on the day of the attack.

The paper quoted Yasushi Tanaka, who was working at the newspaper at the time, as saying the man was wearing a white T-shirt and carrying a handgun and that he told him to stay back.

The reporter also told the newspaper that he had spoken to Tanaka on the phone the day before the attack and that the reporter had not seen the man.

The newspaper cited other Japanese sources who said that they saw a white, bullet-resistant vest with a hooded jacket on the same day.

Tanaka, now working for a local paper, was quoted by the Nikken as saying he had seen the attacker wearing a red hat, a white baseball cap, and a black baseball hat.

The attack in Washington left five Americans dead and the embassy and consulate in the capital in another building badly damaged.

The White House said the incident was the result of a domestic dispute and that all American diplomats and others should stay away from the area.

The embassy in Tokyo also condemned the attack, saying that its personnel and diplomatic missions were fully protected.

Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono told reporters on Thursday that he was unaware of any attacks in Japan against the Japanese government.

In response to the attack in Japan, US President Donald Trump told reporters in Tokyo that he will be “willing to do what it takes to defend our allies.”

He also expressed support for Japan’s military, saying it is “definitely” on Japan’s side in the war against the Islamic State group.

The Japanese embassy was not immediately available for comment.
