  • Stabbing at olympics

    BEIJING (AP) - A knife-wielding Chinese man attacked two relatives of a coach for the U.S. Olympic men's volleyball team at a tourist site in Beijing, killing one and injuring the other on the first day of the Olympics on Saturday, team officials and state media said.

    The man then committed suicide by throwing himself from the second story of the site, the 13th century Drum Tower just five miles from the main Olympics site.

    The brutal attack shortly after midday was all the more shocking because of the rarity of violent crime against foreigners in tightly controlled China, which has ramped up security measures even more for the Olympics.

    The stabbing came only hours after what by many accounts was the most spectacular opening ceremony in Olympic history and it has already dampened some of the enthusiasm.




    I heard it was her father that died and her mother is in serious condition.

      How horrible for the family that something this tragic could happen.
      I've had a bad feeling about this Olympics being held in China from the start. They've been saying their security's been ramped up, but this makes you question that.

            I thought it was just me!!! I have not felt right about China since the announcement...all these docu-dramas shown all over our media (along with BBC and other international channels), showing little 5-6YO children being worked 12-18hr days...making them practice and practice till they pass out!

            Then this? It's a sad world! Prayers to the family

                CNN just said it was the FIL to the coach. His MIL is still in serious condition, their daughter and guide were not harmed
