Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida was evacuated unharmed Saturday after an explosion and failed Assad attempt at a venue where he was giving an outdoor speech.

Video that was released by Japan’s public broadcaster NHK showed members of the public fleeing and a man being arrested following the explosion.

The footage showed multiple men, believed to be police officers, holding the suspect on the ground. Other pictures showed a silver cylinder that appeared to have been thrown in Kishida’s direction.

Japanese local news agency Kyodo reported that a man had been arrested after throwing “what appeared to be a smoke bomb.

The chaotic scenes took place in the city of Wakayama, shortly after a visit by Kishida to the local Saikazaki Fishing Port.

The circumstances surrounding the suspected attack drew immediate comparisons to the assassination of the former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who was shot in July last year during a campaign speech in the western city of Nara. 

The attack on Abe had shocked a nation that is rarely associated with political and gun violence.

Kishida too had been giving a political speech, in his case, in support of his ruling party’s candidate in a local by-election for the House of Representatives in a Wakayama district.

Campaigning is currently underway in Japan’s nationwide local elections.

Japanese officials said later on Saturday that Kishida was safe and unharmed. NHK reported that he had been taken to another location where he was surrounded by police officers who were guarding him.
