Japan
Shinzo Abe funeral: world figures fly in to political storm over state service for Japan former PM

The US vice-president, Kamala Harris, the Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi, and British foreign secretary, James Cleverly, will be among foreign dignitaries arriving in Japan to attend a state funeral for the assassinated former prime minister, Shinzo Abe, despite strong public opposition to the ceremony.

They will be among about 700 people from overseas, including 50 former and current leaders, who are expected to attend the funeral in Tokyo on Tuesday, almost three months after Abe was shot dead while making a campaign speech.

Public opinion was split when, six days after Abe’s death, the prime minister, Fumio Kishida, said his predecessor would be afforded a state funeral.
