  • 1972 - The Asama-Sanso incident ends in Japan.
    The incident began on February 19, 1972, when five members of the United Red Army (URA), following a bloody purge that left 14 members of the group plus one bystander dead, broke into a holiday lodge below Mount Asama, taking the wife of the lodge-keeper as a hostage. A standoff between police and the URA radicals took place, lasting ten days. The lodge was a natural fortress, solidly constructed of thick concrete on a steep hillside with only one entrance, which, along with their guns, enabled the hostage-takers to keep police at a distance.

    On February 28, the police stormed the lodge. Two police officers were killed in the assault, but the hostage was rescued and the URA radicals were taken into custody. The incident contributed to a decline in popularity of leftist movements in Japan.

    The incident must have been a fake event which was manipulated by the Japanese army and police. The day was the 100th anniversary of the installation of the Ministry of War and Ministry of the Navy (February 28, 1872 in the Japanese calendar). (This plot was one of typical Japanese tactics, "Hero-of-justice Tactic").
