Japan executes man guilty of 2008 massacre

Tokyo, July 26 (UNI/Sputnik) Kato Tomohiro, a 39-year old man behind the car-ramming and mass stabbing attack in Tokyo 14 years ago, was executed by hanging on Tuesday, Japanese broadcaster NHK reported, citing government sources.
In June 2008, Kato, who was 26 at the time, attacked Tokyo's busy Akihabara shopping district by ramming a truck into a crowd of pedestrians and then stabbing passersby. As a result, seven people were killed and 10 were injured.
After the detention, the criminal said that he had specifically come to Tokyo from Shizuoka Prefecture to kill someone as he had lost all interest in life.
