Russian diplomats will start the formal identification procedure Friday of a Russian man killed in Japan this week
Russian diplomats will start the formal identification procedure Friday of a Russian man killed in Japan this week, a member of a local consulate staff in Japan said. The body of what is believed to be Sergei Denisov, 42, was found with his hands bound behind his back in a container Thursday in Niigata, northwest of Tokyo. His throat had been cut. "On Friday morning, officers of the Russian Consulate in Niigata will carry out the formal identification of the body after which we will contact Denisov's relatives," Consul Yury Stepanov said. Denisov, who was a second-hand car seller, also held Czech citizenship. "This circumstance somewhat complicates the procedure because we will have to find out where to transfer the body to," Stepanov said. The incident was the second killing of a Russian national in Japan reported this week. On Wednesday, a 22-year-old Russian woman was stabbed to death in a nightclub horrific attack in the port of Kobe on the island of Honshu. Local police said a 47-year-old visitor to the club had stabbed the Russian dancer in the neck and breast several times and then plunged the knife into his own stomach in an apparent suicide bid. The girl died at the scene, but the man was taken to hospital.
