33 feared dead in Kyoto studio fire, PM Abe calls incident 'too appalling for words'

In what can be considered as Japan's worst mass killing in nearly two decades, at least 33 people are feared dead in an arson attack on a Japanese animation studio in Kyoto after a man was witnessed shouting 'die' as he doused the building with fuel. The arsonist is being treated in the hospital as he was injured as well in the incident. PM Abe reacted on the incident, calling the fire 'too appalling for words'.
