A knife carrying man hijacked a public transport bus which he then drove into a crowd, killing 5 and wounding 21 others, according to a statement in several Chinese news outlets. When the bus came to a halt after crashing into several cars, he got out of the vehicle and started stabbing innocent bystanders.
The events took place a few hours ago, at 3.20pm local time, in the southeastern Chinese city of Longyan in Fujian province. A law enforcement officer is among the victims, according to the police.
Pictures and video on social media showed a chaotic scene on the street with a many lying next to the bus, his legs clearly crushed, just as a group of police officers storms the possible perpetrator and disarms him.
Beijing simply released a short statement claiming that the causes of the incident are currently being investigated while social media lit up about the event.
It is not the first mass killing in China this year.
In fact, there have been multiple attacks using knives or vehicles to murder multiple people at the same time but because of the tight controlled state media, the Beijing government is making it seem like nothing ever happens.
