Woman Killed and Five Others Injured in Latest China Knife Spree

Times Online reports that one woman has died from yesterday’s knife attack in a Foshan marketplace:

Tang Changrong died on Monday of a wound to the neck sustained the previous evening at a market in the city of Foshan in Guangdong province.

She was the 18th knifing victim to die in recent weeks — most of them children — spreading fears for public safety in China, a country not known for violent crime.

The other five women victims of Sunday’s attack by Xie Yulin, 20, were in stable condition in hospital, state media said.

According to reports, Mr Xie entered numerous shops and restaurants at the marketplace at about 7pm, attacking the young women before climbing to the fourth storey of a nearby residential building and leaping to his death.
