There have been huge explosions at a US army base in Japan. Helicopters have been spotted circling the area as emergency services rushed to the scene in Sagamihara city, south of Tokyo. The military zone is part of a huge US complex that has three bases and terrorism experts have said it’s “plausible” it was a deliberate attack. The site is part of a US army complex next to the capital where three deliberate explosions were reported in April, in what police suspect was an act of left-wing Japanese extremists.

The Wall Street Journal reported that a spokesman for police in Kanagawa Prefecture said two steel pipes were found planted in the ground with electric cables in the camp.

Japanese terrorist expert Michael Penn, who heads up Tokyo-based news agency Shingetsu News, said it is “plausible” the explosions have a similar explanation.
