Attacked On Television

Written by: George Chittenden : 27 Jul 2019

This incredible image was captured on October 12th, 1960, when a Japanese politician was attacked and killed with a sword by a seventeen-year-old during a televised debate. The victim was Inejiro Asanuma, a man known for his controversial advocacy for Socialism in post-war Japan.

The assassin was Otoya Yamaguchi, who committed suicide a few weeks later. The incident caused mass demonstrations and led to the collapse of the Japanese Socialist Party.
