NHK and TBS gave top play to the rising tensions between the U.S. and Iran, with NHK saying the international community is urging the two nations to exercise restraint. NTV, Fuji TV, and TV Asahi led with follow-up reports on former Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn’s escape from Japan.


Major front-page items in national dailies included Iran’s latest announcement on rolling back its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, a finding by the police that Ghosn rode a bullet train to Osaka before boarding a private jet, and the Justice Ministry’s plan to revise relevant laws to prevent defendants awaiting trial from skipping bail.
