Three men were stabbed after an altercation at an apartment complex in Osaka City's Ikuno Ward late Sunday night, police said. One man died and the other two are in a serious condition.

According to police, at around 11 p.m. Sunday, a woman who was driving by the scene called police reporting that four or five men were fighting with knives and a baseball bat and that one man was lying on the ground, Fuji TV reported Monday.

When police arrived at the scene, they found one man unconscious on the ground and bleeding from a knife wound. He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Two other men were found lying at the entrance of the apartment complex. Both men had suffered knife wounds, police said. They were taken to hospital where they remained in a serious condition Monday.

Police said all three victims appeared to be Vietnamese who lived in the apartment building.

Police said a group of four to five "foreign-looking men" were seen running away from the crime scene.

“foreign-looking men”

why the quotation marks? and how can the men "appear" to be vietnamese? either that's what is says on their passports or it doesn't.

why the quotation marks?

Because the comment refers to men seen running away from the crime scene. Since they have not yet be apprehended, the police have no way to know what nationality their passports indicate and can only speculate as to what it might be.

Were all the victims armed with knives too? or were they ambushed when they were about to go back to their apartment building. If this is the case, this is a premeditated MURDER case where the culprits planned and well-armed already before the encounter with the victims.

Of foreign appearance? Now, that's funny! It is just an implication that it could not have been Japanese men.

They probably were yelling in none Japanese language instead of Hashire! Nigero!

Until they are caught it is pointless to speculate. More importantly, it's not news.....
