NAGOYA (Kyodo) An elderly man stabbed himself in the abdomen Thursday in a restroom at the Nagoya Municipal Government office in Aichi Prefecture and then called out for the mayor as he bled from his wound, police said.

At around 11:20 a.m., a city employee in a third-floor restroom heard a man shouting, “Call the mayor here.” The employee then noticed a man who appeared to be in his 60s or 70s sitting on a toilet and bleeding from the abdomen, police said.
