TOKYO (Reuters) - A Japanese man died after setting himself on fire in a downtown Tokyo park in an apparent protest against the country's shift away from postwar pacifism under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, NHK national television said on Wednesday.
Abe's cabinet in July freed up constraints that had kept the military from fighting abroad, in a major political victory, although one widely opposed by voters.
