Former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe on Friday died hours after he was shot during a campaign event, public broadcaster NHK reported.

“According to a senior LDP (Liberal Democratic Party) official, former prime minister Abe died at a hospital in Kashihara city, Nara region, where he was receiving medical treatment. He was 67,” news agency AFP quoted the public broadcaster.

“Shinzo Abe was transported to the hospital at 12:20 pm (local time) and was in a state of cardiac arrest when brought to the hospital,” Hidetada Fukushima, professor of emergency medicine, Nara Medical University hospital, said at a press briefing.

The politician’s demise, Fukushima explained, was due to loss of blood, which, he said, doctors could not make up for despite carrying out blood transfusions in large quantities.
