Sup Travellers?! I've got some really tragic news for you coming out of China. NY Daily News reports that as much as 33 people have been killed and 143 injured after a group of knife wielding terrorists went into a frenzy at Kunming railway station on Saturday. Four attackers were killed by armed police and another captured. It is unsure what the motive for the killing was but police are investigating and still in search for five of the attackers who got away. 

“All-out efforts should be made to treat the injured people, severely punish terrorists according to the law, and prevent the occurrence of similar cases,” said China’s top police official, Politburo member Meng Jianzhu.

Authorities have branded the attack as a terrorist attack carried out by Xinjiang separatist forces. The far western region of Xinjiang is said to be home to a rebellion against Chinese rule by some members of the Muslim Uighur population. The population is very small and police have gathered about a dozen of them for questioning.

Student Qiao Yunao, 16, was at the station and witnessed the carnage. She said: "I was freaking out, and ran to a fast food store, and many people were running in there to take refuge."

"I saw two attackers, both men, one with a watermelon knife and the other with a fruit knife. They were running and chopping whoever they could."

These days you never know when a terrorist could strike. It was just a regular day in China when this happened. I don't think anyone was expecting to be victims of terror that day. It was definitely one of the worst ways to introduce the new month of the new year. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
