TOKYO — Japan will spend about 250 million yen ($1.83 million) on a state funeral for slain former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Finance Minister Shunichi Suzuki said on Friday.

Abe was shot and killed at a campaign rally on July 8, and although funeral services were held soon after, Japan decided to hold a state funeral on Sept. 27, at Tokyo’s Nippon Budokan venue. (Reporting by Tetsushi Kajimoto and Elaine Lies, Editing by Chang-Ran Kim)
