Westerner among six people stabbed in latest â€˜terroristâ€™ knife attack targeting Chinese train station Assailants carrying long knives pounced on passengers leaving the station Armed police shot one suspect and wounded him, another was caught later Officials blamed the violence on Muslim separatists from Xinjiang in the west A middle-aged Westerner is among six victims wounded in a knife attack at a Chinese train station today, according to witnesses. 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. 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. Nervousness about Islamic militancy has grown since a car exploded on the edge of Beijing's Tiananmen Square in October and 29 people were stabbed to death in March in the southwestern city of Kunming.The government blamed Islamic militants from Xinjiang for both those attacks and a more recent bomb and knife attack at a train station in Urumqi, Xinjiang's capital, that killed one and wounded 79 last Wednesday. Resource-rich and strategically located, the province on the borders of central Asia has for years been beset by violence blamed by the Chinese government on Islamist militants.Exiles and many rights groups say the real cause of the unrest in Xinjiang is China's heavy-handed policies, including curbs on Islam and the culture and language of the Muslim Uighur people.
