Nine people have been injured in a knife attack at a station in the Chinese city of Guangzhou, Chinese Police authorities say.
The attack happened on Friday morning. Police shot one suspect dead and caught another, a statement said.
There have been several knife attacks in the country lately. A few months ago, there were two attacks on stations in China, in Kunming and Urumqi.
Authorities have blamed both on extremists from China’s Uighur Muslim minority.
But other knife attacks, including on school children, have been blamed on people with personal grudges or mental health problems.
Although the motive behind the attack was not clear, China Police suspect that it may be political in nature because of its timing.
The attack is coming a day after China began its annual parliamentary session in Beijing. The National People’s Congress is where the Communist Party sets out its agenda for the coming year.Follow Us on Social Media
