Chinese station knife attack: Six injured in Guangzhou stabbing

At least six people have been injured in a knife attack at a station in Guangzhou, Chinese officials say.

There is no information yet on the motivation for this attack, but it comes a week after an attack at a station in Urumqi, in the western region in Xinjiang, and an attack at Kunming station in March that killed 29 people.

Chinese authorities have blamed both these attacks on separatists from the Uighur minority group.

The BBC's Martin Patience described how the attack unfolded.
