Suspect In Bomb Attack On Japan PM Fumio Kishida Indicted For Attempted Murder

A 24-year-old man has been formally indicted by Japanese prosecutors for attempted murder and other charges in the explosives attack on Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in April, Fox News reported. The indictment comes after Ryuji Kimura underwent a three-month psychiatric evaluation and prosecutors ultimately determined that he is mentally fit for trial, Japan's Kyodo news agency reported.

It was also determined that the bomb used in the attack was lethal.

The assassination attempt happened in April this year when Ryuji Kimura allegedly threw a pipe bomb at Mr Kishida, as he was campaigning in the fishing port of Saikazaki, in the western Japanese city of Wakayama.
