11 dead as driver rams into crowd in China

AFP

BEIJING: Two more people have died after a driver ploughed into a crowded Chinese public square, bringing the death toll to 11, reports AFP quoting local officials yesterday. The incident on Wednesday evening injured another 44 people, according to officials from Hengdong city in central Hunan province. Police have taken the driver—a man in his 40s surnamed Yang—into custody, describing him as a “vengeful repeat offender”. “He drove the car by himself into the crowd at Yujiang Square that night and had with him shovels and daggers to attack the crowd, intending to cause serious damage,” a Thursday police statement said. Yang’s previous offences included drug charges, theft and intentionally causing hurt, according to the statement.

Pictures reportedly from the scene and shared on social media showed a red SUV with a crushed bumper. Videos of the incident circulated briefly on social media, but were quickly removed by censors. Violent crime has risen in China in recent decades as the country’s economic boom has widened the gap between rich and poor. Police have also previously blamed such attacks on militant separatists.
