More knife attacks in Guangzhou, injures 6 people.

The third knife attack in three months, injured six people on Tuesday at the main railroad station in Guangzhou.

Guangzhou police said late Tuesday that there was only one assailant, who was shot and arrested, but witnesses earlier in the day described as many as four men who they said were positioned in different parts of the station.

Witnesses described attackers as being dressed in white and wearing white caps, often worn by Muslims, but it was unclear if they were Uighurs, the minority implicated in the earlier train station attacks.

According to accounts in the state press, the attack took place at 11.30 a.m., when a man wielding a 15-inch-long knife ambushed passengers who were emerging from a train from Kunming. Perhaps coincidentally, Kunming was the location of a March 1 knifing attack in which 33 people were killed.
