Japan Minister fired over disparaging statements

The Minister for post-disaster reconstruction of Japan Masahiro Imamura resigned. This he told reporters after a visit to the office of the Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Earlier Imamura stated that the damage from the devastating 2011 tsunami is estimated in 25 trillion yens (about 227 billion dollars), adding that “it is good that it happened in Tohoku, as closer to the capital would be a very huge amount,” which caused a scandal. He immediately apologized for his words, calling them inappropriate, but the statement was interpreted by them as a disregard for the residents of the affected prefectures.
