Shinzo Abe assassination: Suspect charged with murder in fatal shooting of Japan's former prime minister
Prosecutors in Japan have formally charged the man suspected of assassinating former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe with murder.
The suspect, Tetsuya Yamagami, 41, was arrested right after he allegedly shot Abe with a homemade gun, as the former leader was making a campaign speech in July outside a train station in Nara in western Japan.
Yamagami underwent a nearly six-month mental evaluation, which ended Tuesday. He was found fit to stand trial, according to prosecutors.
