One Dead, 12 Injured in Knife Rampage In Beijing

A man motivated by personal grievances killed a woman and injured 12 others in a knife attack in Beijing Sunday, police said.

The rampage unfolded at a busy shopping mall in the heart of the Chinese capital before officers quickly subdued the attacker, according to the authorities.

Three men and 10 women were injured, but one victim later died. None of the remaining victims are suffering from life-threatening injuries, police added.

Violent incidents are extremely rare in Beijing, which is tightly policed, particularly in the run-up to the Chinese New Year holiday that starts this year on Friday.
