Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Japanese police hold protesters back outside Shinzo Abe’s state funeral” – below is their description.
Footage on social media shows hundreds of people protesting in Tokyo outside the state funeral of Shinzo Abe, a former prime minister of Japan who was shot dead during a campaign speech three months ago.
Investigators believed the attacker bore a grudge against Abe, and some have questioned the level of security around the high-profile figure. As a result, tens of thousands of police officers have been deployed to the funeral, which was attended by the UK foreign secretary, James Cleverly, and the US vice-president, Kamala Harris
