President Barack Obama arrived late Wednesday in Japan and hold the joint news conference with Japan’s Prime minister Shinzo Abe. One of the topics was the incident in Okinawa, which includes death of a Japanese woman at the hands of a former U.S. Marine. Obama apologized for the incident and said, “the U.S. would continue to cooperate fully with the investigation to ensure justice is done under Japanese legal system.”
Obama expressed “his sincerest condolences and deepest regrets,” on the tragedy that happened in Okinawa, when a Japanese woman allegedly died at the hands of a former U.S. Marine.
Kenneth Franklin Shinzato, a civilian worker at the U.S. Kadena Air Base in Okinawa Prefecture, was arrested on suspicion of abandoning the body of the 20-year-old woman, CNN reported. A woman disappeared last month, according to the authorities, and 32-year-old, “indicated he killed the woman.”
