AIR
In Japan, 33 people were killed and dozens injured in a suspected arson attack at an animation studio in Kyoto today.

The fire broke out at the three-storey building at around 10:30 local time when a man reportedly doused the building with flammable liquid.

Quoting police, the local media said, the suspect has been detained and was taken to hospital with injuries. The motive for the apparent attack remained unclear hours after the blaze. 

The fire gutted the three-storey building in the city of Kyoto that housed Kyoto Animation, behind famous Anime Television Productions.

The incident sparked an outpouring of support from the industry and fans worldwide, including a viral fundraising campaign.

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said, the incident was too appalling for words and offered condolences to those affected.
