Mourners and volunteers descended on Kunming today after knife-wielding attackers killed 29 people in a frenzied rampage.
“I saw two attackers, both men, one with a watermelon knife and the other with a fruit knife. They were running and chopping whoever they could.”
Distressing photos circulating online showed bodies, pools of blood and abandoned luggage scattered across the terminal floor in the wake of what authorities termed an ‘organised, premeditated, violent terrorist attack’.
More than 130 people were injured in the frenzied attack last night, which has left China shaken
It is a small step towards comprehending the atrocity as officials try to uncover who was behind it
Earlier, volunteers descended on the city’s hospitals in Yunnan province to give blood for the 130 wounded
Today, hospitals were filled with citizens giving blood as dozens remain in a critical state.
Outside, candles were laid in heart shapes as the nation absorbs the shock of the event.
It is believed that more than 10 people took part in the attack. As well as the four who were shot yesterday, one was taken alive. The rest are still being hunted.
