All networks gave top play to reports that a 26-year-old man was arrested early this morning after breaking into a facility for the disabled in Sagamihara, Kanagawa, and stabbing at least 15 people to death and seriously injuring many others. The man reportedly turned himself in at a police station and claimed that he is a former employee of the center.


Mainichi, Yomiuri, and Sankei gave top play to reports on a joint statement issued by ASEAN foreign ministers that expressed concern over the situation in the South China Sea but did not mention the tribunal ruling on China’s claims in the region. Asahi gave top coverage to a report on a plan by Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ to enable ATM cash withdrawal via smartphones from 2018, while Nikkei led with a report saying that the value of listed Japanese companies’ future obligations to retiring workers reached a record 91.21 trillion yen at the end of fiscal 2015.
