NHK gave top play to a report on a meeting of officials from OPEC and its allies, including Russia, in Algeria on Sunday at which they agreed to make efforts to continue to increase oil production in order to dispel growing concerns over a shortage of oil supplies in response to the U.S. plan to strengthen economic sanctions on Iran in November. NTV and TV Asahi led with reports that Naomi Osaka was defeated in the Toray Pan Pacific Tournament final on Sunday. Fuji TV gave top play to Typhoon Trami, which is increasing in strength and may approach the Japanese mainland toward the end of this week. TBS gave top play to a report on the murder of a female resident of an upscale facility for senior citizens in Machida, Tokyo.
