    China - 29 killed, 140+ injured in knife attack, Kunming train station, 1 March 2014

    From headline in link, I speculated - incorrectly -
    that attacker had firearm(s) but turned out to be a group of knife-wielding men.

    LE released very ltd info so far, per this link posted ~ 1 hr ago (Mar. 1).

    "China's official Xinhua News Agency says at least 27 people are dead and 109 injured
    after a group of knife-wielding men attacked a train station in southwestern China...."
    "The motive behind the attack was not immediately clear,
    but China has seen a number of mass stabbings and other attacks
    carried out by people bearing grudges against society." SBM

    It's my opinion if no link provided.

    From March 2015:

    http://www.thestar.com/news/world/20...31-people.html

    Iskandar Ehet, Turgun Tohtunyaz and Hasayn Muhammad were put to death after China’s Supreme Court upheld their convictions...

    Five knife-wielding assailants hacked 31 people to death and injured 141 on March 1, 2014, an act of violence that shook the country as tensions between the Uighur Muslim minority and the majority Han ethnic group spread beyond the Uighurs’ homeland of Xinjiang.

    Four of the assailants were shot dead at the scene and the fifth, a pregnant woman, Patigul Tohti, was captured alive and later sentenced to life in prison on the charges of joining a terror group and murder.

    I don't blame the OP for assuming the attackers must have had firearms to cause so many casualties. Imagine if the killers had had assault rifles!
