apan PM resumes campaigning after blast incident

Japan’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida
resumed campaigning on Saturday, shortly after being evacuated unharmed from
the scene of an apparent “smoke bomb” blast, local media reported.

“There was a loud blast sound at the previous speech venue. Police are
investigating details, but I’d like to apologise for worrying many people and
causing them trouble,” national broadcaster NHK quoted Kishida as saying at a
stop in western Japan’s Wakayama.

“An election that’s important to our country is taking place, and we must
work together and follow through on it.”
