Watch: Short clip emerges of Tokyo train stabber casually smoking a cigarette

The suspect accused of stabbing 17 passengers on a Tokyo train then setting fire to a carriage has been filmed casually smoking a cigarette shortly before his arrest.

The 24 year old man, who witnesses say committed the crimes dressed as ‘The Joker’ from Batman, was arrested by police after the drama unfolded on a train to Shinjuku, the world’s busiest train station.

This is the third train stabbing attack in Japan since August:

  • In October a 45 year old man stabbed two men at Tokyo’s Ueno station.
  • In August a 36 year old man stabbed 10 passengers on a train in suburban Tokyo.
