Japan has started to investigate the hostage crisis in Algeria
Japan's Prime Minister gathered a group of government officials Sunday to investigate the hostage crisis in Algeria. Shinzo Abe says he called the meeting after Algeria's government said Japanese nationals may have died in the attack on the natural gas production center. A spokesman for Japanese engineering company said four more workers at the gas center have been found alive, bringing the total found to seven. The company has 78 workers at the gas center. The company's president went to Algeria on Saturday.
My thought/opinion on this issue
This terrible news has shown that Japan is in very difficult situation in these cases. Many Japanese have worked aboard and some are in such places that might be targeted by terrorists. In some meaning, they are working to strengthen Japan's economy. But, there are not more important things than humans's life. all Japanese may think.
