An envelope containing a bullet has been sent to the office of Ichiro Ozawa, secretary general of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan, at a Diet members’ building in Tokyo, police said Friday.

The apparent rifle round was enclosed in an envelope that did not bear the sender’s name but carried a postmark indicating it was sent four or five days ago from within Tokyo, they said.
