Knife-wielding attacker kills 1, injures 12 in Beijing shopping mall

The convict, identified only as Zhu, confessed that the attack was located in Joy City, a mall in Beijing's Xidan district, explaining his motive was to "vent his personal discontent".

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

The injured have been taken to hospital, but there is no update yet on their condition, the report said.

The suspect has been arrested. Only his surname was reported, Chu, 35 years from the northern province of Henan.


A video posted online shows a man wielding what looks like a knife and people fleeing in panic.

Violent crimes are rare in China compared to many other countries. One woman died from her injures.

Perpetrators of similar attacks in the past have been described as mentally ill or bearing grudges against society. He said he had committed the attack "as an expression of dissatisfaction", but he did not specify what.

Thirty-one people were killed in 2014 during a knife attack at Kunming train station in southwestern China that the government said was the work of Xinjiang militants.
