Japanese Police Investigate a possible attack on a U.S. Army base near Tokyo
Japanese police said they were researching a conceivable assault on a U.S. Armed force base close Tokyo in the wake of discovering a couple of launchers and a shot Tuesday taking after reports of blasts in the region.
Two iron funnels planted into the ground and went for Camp Zama were found around 800 meters (a large portion of a mile) southwest of the base, which sits close to a neighborhood and a primary school, police said. No wounds or harm were instantly reported from the episode.
Police discovered the funnels after an inhabitant reported listening to three blasts in the range in the early hours of Tuesday.
Examiners later discovered a shot at another field close-by that was accepted to have been discharged at the base from one of the launchers.
Police said they were examining the episode.
