Police Confirm Head & Hand Injuries In AKB48 Attack

Police officials have confirmed that Anna Iriyama has suffered head injuries after being attacked at an AKB48 handshake event.

Reports indicate that Iriyama has suffered the worst of the injuries recieved from the shocking attack. Along with her head injuries, the idol has reportedly broken her right pinkie.

While Iriyama suffers head and hand injuries, Kawaei Rina and the AKB48 staff member involved in the attack were both stabbed in the hand. The exact extent of their injuries is unclear at the moment.

An official statement from the AKB48 is that none of the injuries are life threatening.

The terrible injuries were caused by a 24-year-old man who managed to enter AKB48's handshake event with a hand saw. The assailant began attacking people with the saw, creating a horrific scene for those in attendance.

The assailant has been taken in by police and is currently being held for questioning. He is reportedly being charged with an attempted murder.

    Man, I don't like AKB48, but this takes disliking a group to a whole new level. He should be ashamed! That being said, I hope the girls and staff member are ok and heal quickly.
