The Associated Press reports that the Japanese media is practicing self-restraint from alluding to the hostage crisis involving two Japanese citizens in Syria. According to the report, Japanese society "holds consideration for others in high esteem," thus jishuku
(self-control) is done in order for broadcasters to not be seen as insensitive. The report also notes that restraint has been relatively mild so far.
