[quote] A group of knife-wielding men attacked a train station in southwestern China on Saturday, killing at least 29 people and injuring more than 130 others in what Chinese officials called a terrorist strike, the official Xinhua News Agency said.
Four of the attackers were also shot dead and only one was captured alive after the mayhem, which broke out about 9 p.m. (8 a.m. ET) at the Kunming Railway Station in the capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province.
The Kunming government said the "serious violent terrorist attack was planned and organized by Xinjiang separatist forces," Xinhua reported.
Ethnic Turkish Uighur separatists have been sporadically fighting for an independent state in Xinjiang, in northwestern China, home to about 10 million Uighur, who are predominantly Muslim. More than 100 people have been killed in protests in Xinjiang in the past year.[/quote]
I didn’t even know China had separatists working to create separate states for themselves.
[spoiler]China better start talking about Knife Control[/spoiler]
Hey I guess the United States and China aren’t so different after all.
The U.S. has weak gun control; any one in China with a knife longer than 10 inches makes you a threat.
So if I bring my katanas to China and have it out in public does that me infamous?
