At least 12 presumed dead in Japan studio fire

At least 12 people are presumed dead and more people are missing after a suspected arson attack on an animation studio in the Japanese city of Kyoto, a fire official has told Associated Press.

Kyoto fire department official Satoshi Fujiwara said 35 others have been injured, some of them critically.

There are several others - up to 18 - who could not be reached but it is not clear if all those had reported to work on Thursday, Fujiwara told the Associated Press.

The blaze appeared to have been started deliberately, police said, but there was no immediate information on a possible motive.
