An organized attack has killed 27 or 28 people and injured from 109 to 163 more (the numbers disagree) in one of the world’s largest and most aggressively enforced gun-free zones — Communist China. The probable terrorist attack took place in the modern, tidy rail passenger station in Kunming, in Yunnan province in southern China. The most probable perps are Uighur terrorists, practicing the highest sacrament of The Religion of Peace™, to wit, jihad.
On the plus side, the cops reportedly whacked five of the attackers and have one or more in custody.
At least 28 people have been killed and 113 injured after a group of knife-wielding men hacked their way through innocent people at one of China’s busiest railway stations.
Distressing photos circulating online showed bodies, pools of blood and abandoned luggage scattered across the terminal floor at Kunming Railway Station in Yunnan province.
Authorities described the incident at about 9pm local time (1pm GMT) as an ‘organised, premeditated, violent terrorist attack.’

The ever-censorious Chinese authorities have been deleting graphic images with as much vigor as the attackers mounted their attack. (It’s not like we can learn much from those images). The police response has been powerful, professional — especially compared to the clown show that was the Indians at Victoria Station in Bombay — and, as is usual for the police, too late.
