A series of posts on a mobile phone website foretold the deadly stabbing spree that occurred shortly after noon Sunday in Tokyo’s Akihabara district, a log showed Monday. Seven people died after being hit by a truck or having been stabbed, and 10 others were injured in the rampage.

The posts were apparently put up from early morning until just minutes before the stabbing spree. The descriptions in the posts as well as the time-stamps follow the developments closely.
