Man hijacks bus and drives it into crowd, killing 8 & injuring 22 in Longyan, China
A man has hijacked a bus and drove it into a crowd of people in China’s city of Longyan, killing 8 people and injuring 22 others. The attacker is believed to have entered the bus armed with a knife and caused panic.
The incident happened in the coastal southeastern Fujian province. The assailant was reportedly detained by police. He apparently attacked passengers with a knife and, when people started fleeing, sat behind the wheel and drove into a crowd. One of those killed is thought to be a police officer.
Online footage, purporting to be from the scene, shows a road littered with parts from damaged vehicles and a group of police officers and bystanders pouncing on the alleged hijacker.
Other clips show people lying on the ground, apparently hurt in the incident (WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES).
转：怯者愤怒，却抽刃向更弱者。重大突发，12月25日，福建龙岩的闽FY6998公交车被一持刀歹徒劫持，沿途冲撞街道行人。目前已有5人死亡（含1名民警）、21人受伤。从画面上看，歹徒已经被制服。 不管是什么原因，这种复仇社火上的无辜者们的行为，都不会得到同情。😠 pic.twitter.com/qJ52NSfdbb— LUCY (@zhanglucy88) December 25, 2018
