A deadly arson attack on a television and movie animation studio killed at least 34 people. An arrest warrant has been issued for Mr. Shinji Aoba who is still recovering from serious burns. Mr. Aoba said he committed the attack because the studio had plagiarized his novel. Most of those who died were in their 20s and 30s. It is the worst mass killing the nation has seen in over two decades.

Pray for the families of those who died, that the Lord will comfort them at this time, and introduce them to the love of Jesus.
Pray also for the salvation of Mr. Aoba (The Bible, Proverbs 10:12).
