WORLD TODAY: Seven die in rampage.

THE man suspected of killing seven people in a knifing rampage in Tokyo foretold the mayhem in a series of messages on the internet, including one just before the attack saying, "It's time," police and media reports said today. Tomohiro Kato, accused of ramming pedestrians with a truck yesterday and then stabbing 17 bystanders in Tokyo's Akihabara district, is said to have posted the messages on an Internet bulletin board from his mobile phone, titled: "I will kill people in Akihabara."
