Victim Suddenly Attacked in Aichi School Stabbing Incident

Victim Suddenly Attacked in Aichi School Stabbing Incident

   Nagoya, Nov. 25 (Jiji Press)--The 14-year-old boy who was stabbed to death at school Wednesday was attacked with a kitchen knife soon after being called into the hallway from a classroom by the perpetrator, investigative sources said Thursday.
   Police suspect that the attacker, also a 14-year-old boy in the same year of junior high school as the victim, had a strong grudge against the victim as he had prepared the knife in advance.
   The incident took place at a municipal junior high school in the city of Yatomi, Aichi Prefecture, central Japan.
   According to the Aichi prefectural police department, the victim and the attacker were in different classes. The perpetrator called the victim into the hallway apparently because school rules prohibit students from entering other classrooms without approval.
   After the victim came out of his classroom, the assailant took out the knife he had been hiding and repeatedly stabbed the victim in his stomach. The two barely exchanged words in the hallway before the attack, according to the police department.
