TOKYO — At least 15 people have been stabbed to death at a facility for people with disabilities outside Tokyo, Japanese media reported early Tuesday, describing the kind of mass-casualty attack that is extremely rare in Japan.

A knife-wielding man apparently went on a rampage at the facility in Sagamihara, west of Tokyo. Citing police, the Kyodo news agency said 19 people were dead, while public broadcaster NHK said 15 were killed.
