A knife attack on a Japanese bullet express train near Tokyo has left one passenger dead and two others injured.

Mr Kojima told police he had picked victims at random and had been armed with "multiple bladed objects" on the train, Japanese broadcaster NHK reports. The two women, who are both in their 20s, are conscious and in no danger. The prefectural police will investigate details, including his motive. The police seized a weapon when they arrested Kojima. Another knife was found on the train.

Witnesses said passengers fled in panic, some of them in tears.

Another passenger said: 'Everyone fled and fell like one domino falling after another.
