Seven Air Self-Defense Force jets were apparently sabotaged between April and early July while undergoing routine repairs at a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. plant, police said Thursday.

Six F-4EJ Kai fighters and one RF-4E reconnaissance jet were damaged, including severed wiring and bent engine spark devices. The damage was found in 11 locations on the planes while they were in for repairs at Mitsubishi Heavy’s Komaki Minami factory in Toyoyama, Aichi Prefecture.
