A note found in the clothing of the badly burned victim included the name of the former officer, Japanese broadcaster NHK and other media reported.

(MADRID) — Spain’s Socialist party says it will stop blocking the conservative Popular Party from forming a minority government, ending the country’s nearly 10-month political impasse.
Members of the Socialists’ federal committee announced after meeting Sunday that they would abstain from voting against acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy during a confidence vote in Parliament.
The committee voted 139 to 96 in favor of the abstention, a decision that should prevent a third election.
Two inconclusive elections since last December left Rajoy in charge of a caretaker government.
