TOKYO: The Tokyo Immigration Bureau closed its office Friday after receiving a bomb threat, announcing that the "Immigration Bureau will be bombed and the staff will be harmed," Arab News Japan has learned.

The threat was received via email and was sent to both the Tokyo immigration bureau in Shinagawa and to Shibuya Police Department in Tokyo on May 10.

The email claimed that the Kurdish man questioned by Shibuya police “in an oppressive way.”

As Arab News Japan reported on May 31, a Kurdish man was arrested in Tokyo as residents claimed that “the police brutally tackled a 33-year-old resident recently, injuring his neck in the streets of Shibuya district, central Tokyo.”

It was sent by a person who claimed himself to be an activist for Antifa, short for “anti-fascist.”

Antifa defines a broad group of people whose political beliefs lean toward the left. US President Donald Trump claimed that the group is a “terrorist organization.”

Trump also said that the recent “violence is being led by Antifa and other radical left-wing groups who are terrorizing the innocent, destroying jobs, hurting businesses and burning down buildings."
