Funeral to be held on July 12

Shinzo Abe, 67, passed away on July 8, after being shot by a former Japanese Navy man who was wielding a homemade gun.

He was campaigning for a Liberal Democratic Party candidate in the Japanese city of Nara for the Upper House Elections that was going to be held on July 10.

Doctors fought for over four hours to save his life but were ultimately unsuccessful.

His body was brought back to Tokyo, where a funeral will be held on July 12.
