Japan’s Ex-Leader Abe Assassinated in Public
Abe played a unique role in the U.S.-China-Japan relationship—different from his predecessors. Grant Newsham, senior fellow of Japan Forum for Strategic Studies, tells us why Abe angered China and what his passing will bring out.
After the news broke, comments mocking Abe’s death started appearing on Chinese social media. But one reporter went against that trend.
