A knife-wielding man has attacked a group of schoolchildren waiting for a bus in a Japanese City near Tokyo.
At least 18 people were injured on a residential street in Kawasaki. Two of them, a 12-year-old girl and a 39-year-old man, are dead.
A suspect, a man in his 50s, stabbed himself in the neck after his rampage and later died in hospital.
The suspect was holding knives in both hands as he attacked the victims – sixteen of whom were schoolgirls.
Local media outlets say the 39-year-old victim is believed to be the parent of one of the children.
He was apprehended by Police and later died in hospital from injuries.
