The head of the Osaka Prefectural Assembly decided Monday to delete from the minutes a remark by a member that Korean, Vietnamese and Chinese outfits worn by some students at a high school graduation ceremony made him think he was in a nightclub.

Yoshikazu Kamanaka made the decision at the request of Hiroshi Yagi of the governing Liberal Democratic Party, who made the remark, the assembly’s secretariat said.
