Chinese police capture remaining suspects in train station massacre

By Michelle Kapusta,

Authorities said that Chinese police have caught the remaining suspects in the train station knife massacre that occurred over the weekend.

According to the Associated Press, the official Xinhua News Agency cited a government statement that police seized the three remaining suspects allegedly responsible for the massacre at the train station.

"Of an eight-member group (six men, two women), four were shot dead by police at the scene, a wounded woman was arrested and the other three have been captured," the statement read.

Late Saturday night, the group burst into the Kunming train station in southern China and randomly started slashing people with knives.

The assailants killed 29 and injured over 100 other people.

The attack is believed to be the work of a separatist group from the region of Xinjiang that has been linked to international terrorism.

The Guardian noted on Monday that a Chinese newspaper editorial suggested that the country adopt controversial and expensive measures to ensure terrorist attacks won’t happen again.
