    "Two people have died and 15 others, including more than a dozen schoolgirls, have been injured after a man armed with at least one knife went on a stabbing rampage at a crowded bus stop near Tokyo on Tuesday morning.

    Japanese media said a primary schoolgirl and man in his 30s had died. The attacker, a 57-year-old man, also died after reportedly stabbing himself following the attack near a park in the city of Kawasaki, south of the capital.

    Two girls and a woman in her 40s are being treated for serious injuries, Kyodo news agency said.

    The 13 injured children, believed to be girls aged six or seven, are reportedly pupils at Caritas primary school and were waiting for a bus when the the suspect launched his attack."
