• Japan police arrest man after threats to US envoy Kennedy


    TOKYO: Japanese police said on Friday they have arrested a 52-year-old man for threatening to bomb the US embassy in Tokyo, days after reports emerged that ambassador Caroline Kennedy had received telephone death threats. Officers took Mitsuyoshi Kamiya into custody on the southern tropical island of Okinawa on Thursday, on suspicion of making three calls to the embassy mentioning bombs earlier this month, a police spokesman said. “Bomb Camp Schwab [in Okinawa]. Bomb embassy,” he said in English on the phone, according to the spokesman.
