At least 33 people died and dozens were injured after a man set fire to an animation studio in the Japanese city of Kyoto, officials say. Police said the 41-year-old suspect broke into the Kyoto Animation studio on Thursday morning and sprayed petrol before igniting it. The suspect has been detained and was taken to hospital with injuries. Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the incident was "too appalling for words" and offered condolences.

He was determined to kill as many as possible The question "WHY" will never make sense to the savagery of such an act, so one can only hope he never walks free again.

Another victim has died bringing the total to 34.
The man suspected of setting ablaze a beloved Japanese animation studio, killing 34 people, was raging about theft, and witnesses and media reported he had a grudge against the company, as questions arose why such mass killings keep happening in the country.

Police only have said the suspect Shinji Aoba, 41, who is hospitalized with severe burns and unable to talk, is from near Tokyo and did not work for the studio, Kyoto Animation.
