(TOKYO) — Two apparent explosions hit the Japanese city of Utsunomiya back-to-back Sunday, killing one person and injuring three others in what police are viewing as a possible suicide.
Japanese media reports suggest that the victim, believed to be a 72-year-old former military officer, may have set his house on fire, blown up his car in a public parking lot and then blown himself up in a nearby park.
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.

Tabei didn’t stop climbing after Everest, later summiting the highest peaks in more than 70 countries.
(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.
