NHK and TV Asahi gave top play to reports on the deadly attack at a Christmas market in Berlin. NTV led with a follow-up report on an incident in which criminal papers were filed with prosecutors against a deceased man on charges of murdering a female university student in Shimane in 2009. Other top news included a follow-up report on Japanese singer ASKA, who was released after prosecutors decided not to indict him on charges of using stimulants due to a lack of evidence.


Major front-page items in national papers included the Supreme Court’s ruling issued yesterday dismissing the Okinawa chief’s cancellation of the landfill permit for the FRF construction and updates on a terror attack involving a truck in Germany.
