Anna Iriyama, 18, and Rina Kawaei, 19, suffered hand and head injuries, while  a member of security staff also suffered cuts to his hand.

The group were meeting fans after they held a mini-concert in Takizawa city, northern Japan, on Sunday, when the attacker took a foldable saw from his jacket and thrust it at the singers.

They were left with cuts on their hands and heads and left hospital this morning wearing white towels covering their heads and hands.

Unemployed Satoru Umeta, 24, has since been arrested on suspicion of murder.
