Terrorism has hit citizens of China. Six Chinese people were injured in a knife attack at a Chinese train station reported Al Jazeera on May 6, 2014. In the latest in a series of brutal assaults against Chinese citizens six people were wounded in an attack on Tuesday at a train station in China's southern city of Guangzhou.
These stabbings occurred despite increased security across China in the wake of two other deadly attacks at train stations which were blamed on extremists from western China. The motives for the attacks has not been clear. The Chinese government is concerned Islamist militants may have been responsible for the attacks. A suspect in the most recent attack has been shot and wounded.
Just last week there was a suicide bombing at a train station in Xinjiang which left three people dead and 79 injured.This lead to Chinese President Xi Jinping making demands for decisive actions against terrorists. Prior to this in March five knife-wielding men and women slashed at crowds at a railway station in Kunming city in southwestern China. These attackers killed 29 people and injured more than 140. Four of the attackers were killed by police. The Chinese government has called the attackers terrorists.
In the recent stabbing incident in Guangzhou one of the suspects shouted out something prior to stabbing the victims reports Fox News. These attacks on innocent Chinese citizens are an outrage. Beijing has not been happy with a U.S. State Department report on terrorism which said China's cooperation in fighting terrorism has remained marginal and that the Chinese provided little evidence to prove terrorist involvement in incidents in Xinjiang. However, the Chinese government appears to have a point in labeling these attacks as terrorist attacks. It is after all terrorists who often brutally murder innocent civilians.
