Kyoto Animation studio faced the unthinkable today!
Thursday morning, a 41 year old suspect broke into the studio and sprayed petrol before setting the place on fire. The Kyoto Animation studio is known for its watch-worthy quality of films and graphic novels.
Some sick fuck used gasoline to light the Kyoto Animation studio on fire, killing some and injuring many.
How any human person could do something so horrific is beyond me.
My condolences to all those hard-working employees and their families who were affected in this tragedy. https://t.co/TfTJKY4O5e

The suspect of the incident has been detained, however, he was rushed to the hospital due to the injuries he had incurred. Shinzo Abe, who is the current Prime Minister of Japan, described the event as too appalling for words!! He offered his condolence to the families who have been affected by the incident.
The three-storey high building started blazing with fire at around 10:30 if the local time is considered. The set-fire had such devastating power that the rescue operation is still not completely over. According to the reports of local media, knives have been found at the scene.

Why did it happen, remains a mystery!!
One of the biggest mysteries that are still to be solved is the relation of the man with the company. His motive and driving force behind the incident is also unclear. As described by the eye-witnesses a loud explosion commenced the fire, which was followed by an inferno. Soon the whole of the building was blazing with fire.

Several lives are still trapped in there!
