Tokyo police have arrested seven men in connection with labor insurance fraud, including two who accompanied a Tokyo real-estate executive to the Philippines, where he was shot to death on Luzon last summer.

Police said the two are acquaintances of Takaaki Yushina, 40, who had a 100 million yen life insurance policy listing the pair as beneficiaries. He was found dead in the early hours of July 28.
