By Hyun Oh SAGAMIHARA, Japan (Reuters) - Japanese police on Wednesday raided the house of a 26-year-old man suspected of stabbing to death 19 people and wounding dozens of others at a facility for disabled in a small town near Tokyo, Japan's worst mass killing in decades. About half a dozen plainclothes police entered the home of Satoshi Uematsu, a former employee of the facility, as reporters and TV cameras stood by. Uematsu was earlier sent from a regional jail in the town of Sagamihara, about 45 km (25 miles) southwest of Tokyo, to the Yokohama District Public Prosecutors Office in Kanagawa prefecture earlier in the day.
Former president Bill Clinton urged Americans to dismiss decades of political attacks and elect the "real" Hillary Clinton this November, in a deeply personal testimonial to his wife's character and grit. Turning Republican attacks on their head, Clinton offered a tacit admission that his wife was part of the political scenery and that she was not always as flashy, or such a gifted orator, as other politicians. Republicans who gathered for their own convention in Cleveland last week called on Hillary Clinton to be jailed, accusing her of mishandling classified material, introducing dodgy foreign policies and of rank corruption.
