Ambassador Kennedy’s Message Regarding Events in Sagamihara

On behalf of the American people, I offer my deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of those killed or injured in the attack this morning in Sagamihara.

I was particularly shocked and saddened that such an attack was carried out at a home for the intellectually disabled and against residents who depended on the care of others. My thoughts are with our Japanese friends as they mourn their loss.
