Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe etched his name in the history books by becoming the longest-serving PM of his country on Wednesday. It was 2,887th for Abe in the office. He broke the record of Taro Katsura, a revered politician who served three times between 1901 and 1913. The 65-year-old leader first became the Prime Minister in 2005. Abe's tenure is likely going to last until September 2021.
