BEIJING (Reuters) – A woman was killed and 12 other people injured after a man carried out a knife attack in a mall in a busy shopping district in Beijing, police said yesterday. Police said in a short statement they had detained a man over the early afternoon attack at the Joy City Mall in the Xidan district. Three men and 10 women were sent to hospital after the attack and one woman died of her injuries, police said. The others were expected to recover. Police identified the detained man as a 35-year-old surnamed Zhu from Henan. The man had already confessed to carrying out the attack to “express his discontent”, they said but did not elaborate.
