    A 24-year-old Japanese man dressed in a Joker outfit who attacked passengers on a Tokyo train on Sunday night, injuring 17 people, had expressed admiration for the infamous Batman comic villain and “wanted to kill people and be given the death penalty”, police said.

    The man, who identified himself as Kyota Hattori, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of attempted murder. Videos aired of him smoking a cigarette, dressed in a purple suit with a bright green shirt and tie

    The incident sparked panic and chaos in a country where violent crime is rare, and TV footage showed terrified passengers running through the train as smoke filled the carriage.

    A male passenger in his 70s was in critical condition after being stabbed in the chest on the train, with the attack taking place as partygoers headed into the city centre for Halloween gatherings.
