Man attacks school bus in China, wounding three

File picture [for illustration]

A man holding what appeared to be a knife attacked a bus used by a Japanese school in Suzhou, China, seriously wounding a Chinese woman and injuring a Japanese woman and her child.

The Chinese woman, who was aboard the bus, is in critical condition, while the injuries sustained by the Japanese woman and her preschooler child, who were waiting for the bus at a stop, are not life-threatening, an official at the Japanese consulate in Shanghai told Reuters.

Asked whether strained ties between Japan and China could be behind his action, the official declined to comment and said local authorities have already taken the man into custody and are conducting an investigation.
