外文标题：China: Train station attack an act of terrorism
More than 10 knife-wielding attackers slashed people at a train station in southwestern China late Saturday in what authorities called a terrorist attack by Uighur separatists, and police fatally shot five of the assailants, leaving 34 people dead and 130 others injured, state media said.
The attackers, most of them dressed in black, stormed the Kunming Train Station in Yunnan Province and started attacking people in the late evening, witness Yang Haifei, told the official Xinhua News Agency in an interview from a hospital where he was being treated for chest and back wounds.
“I saw a person come straight at me with a long knife and I ran away with everyone,” he told Xinhua, adding that people who were slower ended up severely injured. “They just fell on the ground,” Yang said.
Evidence found at the scene of the attack showed that it was “a terrorist attack carried out by Xinjiang separatist forces, the municipal government said, according to Xinhua. The report could not be verified. Xinhua said authorities considered it to be “an organized, premeditated violent terrorist attack.”
This is what happens when a nation rejects God

I wonder if China will do what American politicians would do , try to ban all knives from civilians and do back ground checks ? Because we “know” the “knife” is the real culprit , don’t we ? LOL
Knives don’t kill people, people do.
They had knives, they killed 29 people, if they had guns the dead would be in the hundreds. You can use some logic, do not bend everything to fit your fanatic ideology.
Xianjiang Uyghur Muslims….no doubt.
Life in Communist China is cheap.
yap western media are always bias when dealing china why??? chinese thinks they could also control and manipulate western media.
It’s only been a matter of time that China would suffer from the effects of global terrorism
From America we wanna send our condolences to the victims of this horrific attack.
Good thing they didn’t have guns.
Oh no, what about the children! Quick, ban knives.
Chinese style birth control.
Invade Saudi Arabia, China. They fund Terrorism
looks like an act carried out by islamic militants who get trained in pakistan. so far the chinese were encouraging these pakistani generals to counter India and ignoring these militant groups. this is what you get when you are friends of pakistan.
here is how US tries to destabilize china
wow, surprised this happened in such a nice place like Kunming. Kunming was one of the most beautiful cities in China I visited. Just a beautiful place, with clean air unlike the rest of the country.
Why do people blame this on muslims when there’s no clear evidence that they’ve done this?
They better ban knives and all sharp objects now…. These kitchen utensils make people kill ……
Outlaw Knives! Or at least require a nationwide registration of anyone that purchases a knife.
You know the funny thing is Russia the United States and China all face a common enemy but none of us get along worth a damn. Our common enemy is radical islam.
China supports Iran, Iran supports terrorism. What goes around, comes around
The terrorists can kiss their rear ends goodbye when they are caught. China doesn’t play.
No worries…….They have over a billion more!
The attackers that got shot dead at the station were the lucky ones. Scenes of public executions in China are brutal. Made to kneel at the edge of a trench, hands tied, head blown off with a machine gun aimed at the back of the head. The police make sure there is no face left. Sorry, just reality.
Clearly, knife control laws are needed. If just one life could be saved, it would be worth it.
Mass murder with no guns? I thought that wasn’t possible!!
Sick people…if they want to kill people they should go straight and kill those cummy officials not innocent people
I’ve been to China several times, I even went on a cross country tour. The people were nice and the culture is beautiful. This is a tragedy.
I’m actually going there tomorrow. Luckily, the place I’m going to doesn’t have a heavy Muslim presence.
China needs to Learn from America CIA, FBI, by any methods to Kill Terrorists !!!!
How in the world did these guys pass the background checks to buy knives?
Diane wants to know.
I wonder if any of the terror attackers is among the Uighur prisoners that the Obama administration let go free?
