Six people were wounded in a knife attack at a Chinese train station Tuesday, after a series of violent episodes at transport hubs authorities blame on “terrorists” from the restive region of Xinjiang.
Chinese media reports said there were as many as four attackers in white caps — often donned by Muslims — at the station in the southern city of Guangzhou.
But police said later that there was only one and did not offer any details on attire.
… Rohan Gunaratna, professor of security studies at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, told AFP: “The scale of violence in Xinjiang has steadfastly increased and now it is spilling over to other parts of China.
“China faces now a very significant and a really sustained threat from terrorism.”
