Dozens of people gathered in front of the Japanese Prime Minister's Tokyo offices on Sunday, following a video was posed online purportedly showing Islamic State militants beheading Japanese journalist Kenji Goto. Protesters criticize the statesman for the handling of the hostage situation and Abe’s alleged aggressive foreign policy. Several demonstrators bore anti-war placards, one carrying the message ‘don’t let Abe also kill me.' The 47-year-old journalist went to Syria in October. Goto’s apparent beheading comes only a week after Haruna Yukawa, another Japanese hostage captured by IS fighters, suffered a similar fate.
