Police in Tokyo said Wednesday that a 39-year-old Okinawan man has been arrested for posting a message on Twitter in which he threatened to detonate a bomb at Haneda airport in Tokyo.
According to police, Keiyu Takii, a resident of Nakagasukujo, is accused of posting a message on Twitter at around 4 p.m. on Feb 1 in which he said that the next day at around 9 a.m., he would detonate a bomb in the airport terminal and throw Japan into chaos. TV Asahi reported that police searched the terminal but found no explosive devices.
Takii was arrested in Okinawa and transferred to Tokyo on Wednesday afternoon where he was charged with fraudulent obstruction of business. He was quoted by police as saying the death threat was his masterpiece.
Police said Takii is also believed to have posted another Twitter message in which he said he would set off a bomb in front of Hachiko at Shibuya Station in Tokyo. The writer of that message, posted from the same IP address as the Haneda bomb threat, said he wanted to kill as many people as possible and see their blood.© Japan Today
