Tokyo: Police say two Americans are being questioned about an Irish woman`s death in a Tokyo hotel.

Police officials said on Monday the 21-year-old exchange student had been strangled. Japanese media say the woman, her friend and the Americans met at a Nicki Minaj concert on Thursday in Tokyo.

Police arrested 23-year-old dancer James Jamari Blackston and a 19-year-old musician on suspicion of sexually molesting the victim`s female friend in a taxi to the hotel.

Police are also questioning the men about the student`s death. The police officials spoke to a news agency on condition of anonymity, citing policy.

Japanese media identified the woman as Nicola Furlong. The hometowns were not released.

The younger suspect was not named because he is a minor under Japanese law.
