A woman walks past a poster of animation "Assassination Classroom" in Tokyo, Saturday, Jan. 31, 2015. Images or mentions of knives, ransom or blood - or anything else that can be seen alluding to the hostage crisis involving two Japanese in Syria - have been cut out. Some anime and other entertainment programs are altering, canceling or postponing episodes violating those sensitivities - typical of the kind of self-restraint shown here to avoid controversy. The following day, broadcaster Fuji Television Network canceled an episode of the animation, citing "inappropriate material given the current situation."

People walk past television screens displaying a news program, about an Islamic State video showing Japanese captive Kenji Goto, in TokyoBy Sylvia Westall and William Mallard BEIRUT/TOKYO (Reuters) - Islamic State militants released a video on Saturday which purported to show the beheading of Japanese journalist Kenji Goto, who the al Qaeda offshoot had been holding hostage. Japan condemned the Islamist group and said Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's cabinet would meet in response to the video, which showed a hooded man standing over Goto with a knife held to his throat, followed by footage of a body with a head placed on it. The release of the video came exactly a week after footage purportedly showing the beheaded body of another Japanese hostage Haruna Yukawa. "I cannot help feeling strong indignation that an inhuman and despicable act of terrorism like this has been committed again," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said, adding the video appeared to show Goto.
