China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

A knife-wield­ing man stabbed two peo­ple, one fa­tally, in Aus­tralia’s sec­ond-largest city on Fri­day in an at­tack likely linked to ter­ror­ism, po­lice said. The at­tack dur­ing the af­ter­noon rush hour brought cen­tral Mel­bourne to a stand­still. Po­lice said the man got out of a ve­hi­cle, which then caught fire, and at­tacked three by­standers with a knife be­fore be­ing shot by po­lice. The sus­pect died later at a hos­pi­tal. One of the vic­tims also died and the two oth­ers were hos­pi­tal­ized.
