Broadcasters led with reports on the explosions near the Kabul airport apparently caused by ISIS suicide bombings that claimed the lives of Afghans and U.S. service members (NHK, TBS), the impact of the discovery of contaminants in Moderna vaccines in Japan (NTV), TV personality Nonomura Makoto’s recent discharge from the hospital after being treated for COVID-19 (Fuji TV), and an increase in the number of accidents involving electric scooters in Japan (TV Asahi).


All national papers gave prominent front-page play to the explosions outside the Kabul airport and former Foreign Minister Kishida’s announcement on Thursday that he plans to seek the LDP presidency.
