Japanese hostages in Iraq

The translation of Chapter 1 of the book Brain Dead Person was revised. I believe there are no big mistakes in the revised text. I hope you will enjoy this translation.

By the way, the Japanese government asked three Japanese hostages held and released in Iraq to pay 2 million yen (a huge amount of money) for the cost of a plane ticket etc. The hostages are a journalist and two NGO volunteers aiming to help Iraqi people, but many Japanese people have criticized that they were extremely bothered by the hostages.

This is the ugliest aspect of the national character of Japan. I hate it!
