For the third time in just this past month, there has been a knife attack at the main railway station in Guangzhou. I don’t know about you, but I am having a hard time keeping track. In this latest attack 6 people were injured by at least one assailant who slashed people seemingly at random. 

From the LA Times:

“According to accounts in the state press, the attack took place at 11.30 a.m., when a man wielding a 15-inch-long knife ambushed passengers who were emerging from a train from Kunming. Perhaps coincidentally, Kunming was the location of a March 1 knifing attack in which 33 people were killed.”

The suspect was shot by police, who have just recently began carrying sidearms. No word whether the cops had a higher hit rate than the whopping 32% posted by the NYPD.
