Tractor Rampage Attack in China Kills 11

BBC reports on a violent attack by a drunken coal worker on a tractor in Hebei province’s Yuanshi county:

Driver Li Xianliang, 38, was arrested after running amok for an hour around a coal depot in Hebei province on Sunday.

The driver ploughed into pedestrians, cars and shops as he drove away from the depot before coming to a stop in a field where he was arrested.

The incident began with an argument between Mr Li and a customer.

Mr Li killed the man at the Hongyuan coal depot and then set off down the street on a powerful tractor with a shovel on the front, officials said in a statement.
