Main article: Assassination of Shinzō Abe

On the morning of 8 July 2022 JST, former Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe (安倍 晋三, Abe Shinzō), 21 September 1954 – 8 July 2022) was assassinated in the city of Nara, Japan while giving a speech during a campaign outside of Yamato-Saidaiji Station.[1].


On 8 July 2022, Abe was making a speech on behalf of Councillor Kei Satō, a Liberal Democratic Party candidate running for re-election, ahead of upcoming upper house elections scheduled two days after. Abe was accompanied by security however the alleged assassin managed to get within several meters, without being challenged, before firing Abe with an improvised shotgun. Abe's security detained the man without him resisting.

Abe was initially conscious and communicative right after he was shot. He was transported to a local hospital by an emergency helicopter with a wound on the right side of his neck and internal bleeding under his left chest, and was reported to have no vital signs when he arrived at Nara Medical University Hospital in Kashihara, likely due to the cardiac arrest he suffered prior to arriving at the hospital.

Abe was pronounced dead at the hospital at 5:03 p.m. JST, around five-and-a-half-hours after the initial shooting with his cause of death being from blood loss.


The suspect had a grudge against the Unification Church, and belief that Abe and the religion are closely connected. When interrorgated, the suspect told authorities that he assassinated not because of a political grudge, but a religious one.
