Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, in cardiorespiratory arrest after being shot several times

Abe was taken by ambulance to a hospital after the incident and health services are trying to restore his vital signs, according to police and health services in the city of Nara (western Japan), where the attack took place, reports Eph.

Japanese police have arrested a man for the shooting, state television NHK reported. The identity of the detainee has not been released.

"This barbarism cannot be forgiven, regardless of the person's reason, so we strongly condemn it and we will do our best to help," said Japanese government spokesman Hirokazu Matsuno.

The Prime Minister of Japan, Fumio Kishida, has canceled his electoral agenda and is on his way to Tokyo where he is expected to attend the press, reports Efe.

Japan's former Minister of the Interior and Communications, Sanae Takaichi, also condemned the attack and said that she hopes Abe is alive and "does not condone political terrorism", while Satoshi Nakanishi, Defense Minister at the time of Abe, has assured that "Terrorism and violence should not be condoned."

"We are saddened and shocked by the shooting of the former prime minister. Abe has been an outstanding leader for Japan and a steadfast ally of the United States," said US Ambassador to Tokyo Rahm Emanuel.
