Murder suspect's parents should be executed: minister

TOKYO, Japan - State minister Yoshitada Konoike (L) walks in the Diet building along with land and transport minister Chikage Ogi (R) on July 11. Konoike ignited a firestorm of criticism with his remarks that the parents of a 12-year-old boy suspected of murdering a child in Nagasaki should be executed instead of their young son, who is exempted from criminal charges. The remarks mark a fresh blow to Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi who has been taking much of the flak for a recent series of gaffes by ministers and senior lawmakers. (Kyodo)
