Good evening, everybody. It is Steve Lookner with Agenda Free TV. We are here to bring you live updates on the aftermath of the strong 7.5 earthquake in Japan that struck on the afternoon of New Year’s Day. And we will be bringing you the latest updates.

Stabbing in South Korea

Before we get into the Japan news, I do want to give you a quick update about a breaking story that I was just following before coming on the air. In South Korea, the leader of the opposition party, Lee J. Myung, was stabbed in the neck at an appearance in Busan, South Korea. He has been taken to the hospital and is said to be conscious. The attacker has been arrested.

Details of the Attack

The attacker, an older man believed to be in his 60s or 70s, approached Lee J. Myung, who was wearing a paper crown, and asked for an autograph. He then violently stabbed Lee in the neck with a weapon. Lee suffered a 1 cm laceration on his neck but is in stable condition with minimal bleeding.

Earthquake in Japan

Now, let’s turn our attention to the earthquake in Japan. The earthquake, measuring 7.5 on the Richter scale, struck on New Year’s Day in Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture. The earthquake caused significant damage, resulting in multiple fatalities and injuries.

Damage in Wajima City

Reports indicate that over 200 buildings, including homes and businesses, have been completely destroyed in a large-scale fire in Wajima City. The fire is now under control, but rescue efforts are ongoing to search for any potential victims.

Death Toll

As of the latest update, the death toll in Ishikawa Prefecture, including Wajima City and Suzu City, has risen to at least 23. Search and rescue operations are still underway, and it is possible that the number of casualties will increase as more information becomes available.

Damage to Noto Airport

Noto Airport, located in Wajima City, has been severely affected by the earthquake. The runway has cracks and the terminal building has been damaged, rendering the airport inoperable. Around 500 people, including staff and passengers, are currently stranded at the airport due to road closures.


This is an ongoing situation, and we will continue to bring you the latest updates on both the earthquake in Japan and the stabbing in South Korea. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families during this difficult time.
