11 injured in eastern China knife attack


Beijing, Feb. 21, 2019 (dpa/NNN) 11 people on Thursday were injured in a knife attack in eastern China, police in Jiangxi province said.

“The suspect, a 33-year-old man with previous psychiatric problems, was apprehended following the attack in Ji’an City.

“Victims included children, although there were no life-threatening injuries,’’ police added.

Knives are commonly used in attacks in China, where ownership of guns is illegal.

The country has seen a number of knife attacks in recent years.

In February 2018, one woman was killed and 12 people were injured in a knife attack at a Beijing shopping centre.

In July 2017, two people were killed and nine were injured in a knife attack at a Walmart in southern China.

Such attacks are generally blamed on individuals suffering from mental illness or those holding grudges against society. (dpa/NNN)
