    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

    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!
