(01-21 11:18)

A Japanese man who runs a non-profit organization promoting motherhood has been arrested on suspicion of kicking and beating his wife, police said.
Shinji Morimatsu, 49, the chairman of the Japan Mothers Society, is alleged to have hit his 51-year-old wife around the head and face then kicked her in the chest and abdomen as she lay on the floor on May 26, said a senior official at the Matsuyama Higashi police station in western Japan.
The Japan Mothers Society holds seminars on child-rearing as well as giving out a “Best Mother'' award every year.
Police spokesman said Morimatsu's wife took a month to recover from her injuries.
The wife hinted that there had been previous incidents of domestic violence, the official said.
Morimatsu, who was arrested on Monday, has told police that he and his wife had quarrelled, but insisted there had been no violence, the official added.
