TOKYO (AP) — Japan was in a state of shock and mourning on Sunday after a video was released appearing to show the beheading of journalist Kenji Goto by Islamic State extremists
“Kenji has died, and my heart is broken. Facing such a tragic death, I’m just speechless,” Goto’s mother Junko Ishido told reporters.
“I was hoping Kenji might be able to come home,” said Goto’s brother, Junichi Goto, in a separate interview. “I was hoping he would return and thank everyone for his rescue, but that’s impossible, and I’m bitterly disappointed.”
People in #Tokyo gather outside PM #Abe’s office to remember #KenjiGoto #silentaction against violence.
