    TOKYO, July 19 (RIA Novosti, Andrei Fesyun) - A 70-year-old pensioner has been arrested in Japan on charges of planning to blow up a hospital for what he deemed bad service.

    A Japanese police spokesman announced at a briefing in Tokyo today that Mitaro Yamasita was found to be carrying several dozen sticks of dynamite in his bag.

    The accused confessed that he "wanted to take revenge for the negligence of personnel at the hospital," where he had previously undergone treatment.

    Upon searching the pensioner's apartment, another 150 sticks of dynamite were discovered.
