Iriyama and Kawaei released from the hospital


AKB48 members Iriyama Anna (18) and Kawaei Rina (19) were released from the hospital, a day after they were attacked by a crazed unemployed man named Satoru Umeta who admitted to police that he was not a fan and wanted to randomly murder someone. Umeta has been charged for attempted murder.

Kawaei briefly talked with reporters to say, “We’ve caused you worry, but we are returning to Tokyo now”.
