CHINA: ‘Another’ knife jihad attack by Uighur Muslims?

All of the previous knife attacks over the past few years in China have been by the Uighur Muslim separatists, although you wouldn’t know it from most of the media reports. Where is the Chinese crackdown on this Muslim terrorist community?

UK Daily Mail  At least two women and three men, including a European man his 50s, were said to be among those injured by assailants wielding foot-and-a-half-long knives at Guangzhou Railway Station in Guangdong province. A group of men sat on steps outside the station for two hours this morning before, at 11 o’clock, they let out a shout, pulled 20in knives from their bags and began attacking people, said a shopkeeper who witnessed it. Armed officers shot and wounded one of the attackers, said Guangzhou police. Local media reported that a second suspect was captured fleeing the scene.

Officials are blaming the attack on ‘terrorists’ from Xinjiang, a mainly Muslim western province in the grip of a separatist insurgency. Police later denied a Westerner had been involved in the attack, despite the witnesses’ reports.
