Mourning, disbelief & anger at the death of Japan’s Shinzo Abe

In Slain Shinzo Abe, His Longtime Aide Lost a Friend | GZERO Media

When Tomohiko Taniguchi learned that former Japanese PM Shinzo Abe had been killed, he felt many things, but first his thoughts turned to the man who took the life of his ex-boss and mentor.

"I was filled with a lot of but different emotions all at the same time," he tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World. "Disbelief, grief, [but] the strongest emotion, of course, was anger."


Still, Taniguchi believes it was an isolated incident that doesn't indicate we're at the tip of an iceberg of political violence to come for Japan.

And above all, he misses his friend.
