The man was taken to hospital suffering burns to his entire body, while a police officer who tried to extinguish the flames was also injured.
 
The man, in his 70s, was unconscious when first found but later told police that he had deliberately doused himself in oil, media said. A letter about Abe's state funeral and the words "I strongly oppose it," was found nearby.
