Casualties 159 29 killed 130 injured
Saturday February 28, 2014 Kunming China Train Station Stabbing Attack At least 29 are killed and 130 injured by a gang of apparent knife-wielding terrorists dressed in black uniforms who went on a stabbing spree at a train station in Kunming, China. The government concluded it was a terrorist attack by Uighur extremists as the men were gunned down by police. Chinese media is calling it China's 9/11, while other media question why the government is not releasing any evidence of connection to terrorists or revealing the identities of the attackers. Initially no motive has been revealed as the press noted the pattern of violent attacks by people who were angry or bearing various specific grudges against doctors and other elements of society, and also attacks by uighurs seeking an independent Islamic state.

March 3, 2014 Two Days For US To Acknowledge Kunming Attack Might Be Terrorists The United States does not acknowledge that the Kunming attack is a terrorist act until Monday, two days after the Saturday attack, and still refused to consider the Beijing jeep attack to be the work of terrorists. It was only upon prodding by a Chinese reporter from Hong Kong who asked what the State Department would consider a terrorist attack. The reply was "based on the information reported by the Chinese media, this appears to be an act of terrorism, targeting random members of the public. So we are calling this an act of terrorism." When asked why the US declined to call the Jeep attack at Tiananmen square a terrorist attack, the reply was that they had "no new information" on that case.


One stabs a school might be a crazy person. 10 people in uniforms, there is no question this was an organized attack without needing any sold evidence of connection to any group, and identification as Uighur cinches it. It may also point to the possibility that all of the so-called grievance attacks were nothing more than a cover story for lone-knife-man attacks that were actually politically motivated, and a possible explanation for similar knife and shooting attacks in the US against the public or specific grievances against doctors and lawyers.

NPR radio report - a witness says a man carrying a bag dropped it and a team of people reached in and pulled on 20 inch knives, which another said is even more terrifying than gun. Chinese media is calling it the Chinese 9/11. One woman was dressed in black, resembling a muslim black widow terrorist. Gladney said this was unusual escalation, previous attacks directed against police and government offices near Xinjiang and this might have been motivated by Islamic extremism. One remark that they may have chosen a target 1000 miles away to get away from extreme security in Xinjiang

    On 1 March 2014, a group of knife-wielding men and women attacked passengers at theKunming Railway Station in the Chinese city of Kunming, Yunnan.

  2. On 1 March 2014, a group of knife-wielding men and women attacked passengers at the Kunming Railway Station in the Chinese city of KunmingYunnan.[1] At least 33 people were killed, including four assailants and one police officer, and 143 others were injured.[2]
    The attack occurred at about 9:20 p.m. Beijing time, with at least ten attackers.[3] Both male and female attackers were seen to pull out long-bladed knives, before stabbing and slashing passengers.[4] According to local media, at least four attackers, dressed in black, were shot dead by the police.[5][6] Kunming's government had linked the attack to Xinjiang militants.[7][1] A black flag was confiscated by the police at the scene.[8]

    Attacks[edit]

    At 9:20 p.m. (Beijing Time) on 1 March 2014, at least ten individuals wearing black clothes rushed into the square and ticket lobby of Kunming Railway Station and appeared to attack people indiscriminately. Arriving at the scene, police officers sealed off all the three floors of the station.[9]
    At least 29 people were killed and 143 were injured (including 7 policemen) during the incident. Among the fatalities were two security guards employed by the station. All the wounded were sent to 11 hospitals in Kunming.[10] Police initially attempted to subdue the attackers using tear gas shells but were unable to do so,[11] before shooting four suspects and arresting one. The police arrested a further three suspects on Shangyi Street, although the relationship of these suspects to the attack remains unclear.[12] The suspect detained at the scene had been wounded, and was sent to hospital.[13]
    Yang Haifei, a victim who sustained several injuries in the attack, said he was buying a ticket when a group of people rushed into the station, most of them in black dress, and started attacking others with knives. He also said that the attackers attacked the people like "maniacal swordsmen", and they mostly went for the head, neck and the shoulders to kill them.[14]
    China News Service quoted a Mr. Tan, who remembered 7 to 8 attackers indiscriminately slashing people regardless of age, even stabbing the wounded on the floor until they were dead. He also saw a police officer carrying a child of about 5 or 6, with slashed pants and blood streaming down the legs.[15]

    Initial response[edit]

    After the incident, all the trains originally scheduled to stop at Kunming Station were provisionally arranged to stop at other places until 11:00 p.m. (Beijing Time) of 1 March when services gradually resumed.[13] Personnel at the Changshui International Airport also held an emergency meeting and tightened security though they state that they are operating normally.[16]
    There were scattered news reports suggesting that similar attacks occurred in Dashuying in the Jinma subdistrict of Kunming, but local police have stated that reports of "several places suffering attacks" are only rumors.[17]
    The Red Cross Society of China sent a team to Yunnan in the morning of 2 March to direct the Yunnan Red Cross Society to assist with rescue efforts and to provide counseling to the relatives of victims and shocked civilians.[18]
    On 2 March, armed policemen patrolled the area around Kunming Railway Station.[19][20] In the early morning, citizens began to put flowers on the square in front of the station to mourn the dead.[21] At 13:00, the Kunming Police disclosed some information of two suspects, one woman and one man, according to statements of witnesses.[22]
    In the aftermath of the attack, Kunming police began rounding up members of the small local Uyghur community for questioning. One local Uyghur questioned this police action saying that it was impossible for anyone tell if the assailants were Uyghurs as they were all dressed in black: "We did not like the attack either."[23]Hong Kong's Ming Pao reported that local Uyghur residents are furious with the assailants for disgracing Xinjiang migrants.[24]

    Reactions[edit]

    Domestic[edit]

    After the attack, CPC general secretary Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang assigned Meng Jianzhu, Secretary of the Central Politics and Law Commission to oversee the investigation.[25] There was some coverage in the regional press; local Kunming Times carried the story on its front page. It was business as usual as most newspapers in the rest of the country. The South China Morning Post reported that there was no mention of the attack in Beijing NewsBeijing Times orBeijing Youth Daily, and the CCTV evening news did not report the attack; other national media kept the news item out of the headlines. Coverage was scant in the Southern Metropolis Daily in Guanzhou and Yangtse Evening Post; microblogged and social media hosted images of the carnage were swiftly deleted by censors.[26] On the other hand, the English language daily newspaper Global Times said that "a nationwide outrage has been stirred... [by] China's '9-11'".[27]
    The SCMP noted that the attack seemed to have been times to occur on the eve of the second session of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.[26] Lü Xinhua, spokesman for the conference denounced the attack as a "serious violent terrorist attack [perpetrated by] terrorist elements from Xinjiang."[28] This assertion has been echoed by officials in Kunming.[29]

    International[edit]

    Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon strongly condemned the attack and expressed condolences to the bereaved families.[30] The United Nations Security Council strongly condemned the attack. Its members extended their deepest sympathy and condolence to the victims.[31]
    Dilxat Rexit, a spokesman for the World Uighur Congress deplored the attacks, denounced "any form of violence", and urged the Chinese government to "ease systematic repression".[32]

China’s Islamic Kunming Knife Terrorists Responsible For Train Depot Massacre Tried To Leave China and Join Global Jihad


China: Attackers had tried to leave the country to join ‘global jihad’ and committed massacre after they were refused

8:18AM GMT 05 Mar 2014
Attackers who launched a brutal mass knifing at a Chinese train station acted   in desperation after a failed attempt to leave the country and become   jihadists overseas, a Chinese official was Wednesday quoted as saying...
Qin Guangrong, the Communist Party chief of Yunnan province which includes   Kunming, said the eight attackers travelled to his province and Guangdong,   which borders Hong Kong, as they tried to leave the country, China Radio   International said, in a report that was later deleted from its website.
“These eight individuals originally wanted to join jihad,” Qin was quoted as   saying.
“They couldn’t get out at Yunnan so tried to get out in other places, but they   also couldn’t leave Guangdong, so once again they returned to Yunnan.”
When the group failed to escape through southern Yunnan’s Honghe county -   which borders Vietnam – they hatched the plan to target either the frontier   area or Kunming’s transport terminals, the report quoted Qin as saying.
His comments had some similarities with an earlier report by US-funded   broadcaster Radio Free Asia (RFA), which quoted sources as saying the eight   attackers travelled from Xinjiang to Yunnan in order to cross the border   into Laos on their way to seek sanctuary elsewhere.
RFA’s sources said the eight may have been Uighurs fleeing a police crackdown   in Xinjiang’s Hotan prefecture.
The sources said they could have given up their attempt to leave after another   group of about 30 Uighurs was detained in the border area in September.
It quoted a Uighur in Kunming as saying they may have decided to go on a   killing spree to avenge the deaths of others in Xinjiang.
“They were likely reacting to the extra-judicial killings that have occurred   about a dozen times last year in Xinjiang,” the Uighur was quoted as saying.   “Their message to the government was, ‘We can do something also’.”
The assault that state media dubbed “China’s 9/11″ has shocked the nation, and   led to security being strengthened across the country.
The public security ministry said an eight-strong gang carried out the attack,   with three suspects captured Monday and five assailants shot at the scene,   four of them fatally.

  2. Jun 27, 2007 - The thread appears to loosely wind through Indonesia, Malaysia,Thailand, the PhilippinesSingapore, Cambodia and even tightly controlled  ... Evidence is growing that threads of homespun Islamic extremism in seven countries of Southeast Asia are weaving links among each other. Malay Muslim insurgents fighting an increasingly violent conflict in southern Thailand, for example, now appear to be receiving assistance from Islamists elsewhere in Southeast Asia. The thread appears to loosely wind through Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, Cambodia and even tightly controlled Burma. Mention of terrorism in this region and the international community automatically thinks of the Bali bombings, which killed 202 vacationers in October 2002. But the violence is far worse in southern Thailand, where barely a day has gone by in the last year without several people shot, blown up or even beheaded. This violence is perpetrated in the name of a radicalism that ultimately seeks a separate Islamic state, or at least autonomy, forged from Thailand's southernmost provinces bordering Malaysia. The majority there is ethnic Malay.
  3. The Thai authorities estimate that about 2,300 people -- mostly civilians but also, increasingly, conscripted soldiers -- have died since the militant resurgence of a decades-old Muslim-Buddhist conflict begin in 2004.

    Bangkok's political and military leadership have long denied that Thailand's Muslims were anything other than a local problem. But now a senior Thai military officer and adviser to the coup-installed government in Bangkok, General Boonsang Niempradit, has publicly alleged that radicals from Cambodia's Muslim minority are being recruited to fight the Thai army in Thailand's deep south.

    Ironically, while petulantly denying that any Cambodians are involved in overseas violence, Phnom Penh Prime Minister Hun Sen accused Thailand of trying to internationalize a domestic problem. Nothing could be further from the Bangkok military's collective mind, say observers.

    Thailand's army chief and leader of last September's military coup, Sonthi Boonyaratkalin, said just last week that the Thai government needs to improve relations with the Organization of the Islamic Conference -- notably Malaysia, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, which currently have key stewardship of that body -- to keep it from becoming embroiled in the southern insurgency.

    .. needs the OIC's help in curbing the most radical links between southern Thailand's religious schools and the Middle East. He said he believes the Malay Muslim militants want to internationalize the conflict....

Western media condemns “terrorist attacks that happen at their door, but show sympathy to terrorists killing people in China”

KunmingjihadThe Western media is indeed contemptuous of the idea that China faces a jihad threat. It always puts the word “terrorists” in sneer quotes, and presents the idea that violent jihadists are carrying out attacks in China as merely a claim of China’s repressive government. Wang Xiaonan may not be aware, however, that the Western mainstream media is just as dismissive of the idea that the West faces a jihad threat, and “journalists” such as Christiane Amanpour, Bob Smietana, Niraj Warikoo, Lisa Wangsness and many, many others show active and open sympathy and support for jihadists and Islamic supremacists, while heaping derision, scorn, and defamation upon those who dare to oppose jihad terror.
“Kunming attack shows terrorists now hitting softer targets,” by Wang Xiaonan for Global Times, March 3:
An appalling slaughter struck Kunming, the capital of Southwest China’s Yunnan Province, on Saturday, turning it overnight from a tranquil spring city to a site of horror gripping the world’s attention.
This inhumane attack has been identified to be orchestrated by separatist forces from Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. The terrorists of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement previously carried out violent attacks in Xinjiang and then Beijing. It was actually unanticipated that terror would strike serene Kunming.
The terrorists targeted this peaceful city mainly because Urumqi and Beijing have made full preparation for terrorist attacks, particularly before the “two sessions” this year. It is difficult for terrorist groups to launch attacks in areas with stern security measures.
Kunming has certain advantages to terrorists. Located close to Southeast Asia and boasting dozens of ethnic groups and a diversified cultural background, Kunming offers mobility throughout the vast and complex cross-border terrain, making it convenient for terrorists to hide and flee.
Armed gangs from Xinjiang have been trafficking drugs in the cross-border region for many years, and they probably collude with and offer assistance to separatist forces.
Western media downplayed the deadly attack while hyping ethnic hatred in China.
The New York Times stated in an article: “Many Uyghurs resent the government’s controls on their religious life and say the growing presence of Han people in Xinjiang has deprived them of jobs, land and opportunities…The Chinese government’s own repressive policies have seeded the violence.” Other major outlets including Forbes and CNN published similar comments.
Such an attitude demonstrates that the West still applies a double standard to combating the simmering challenge of terrorism. They strongly condemn terrorist attacks that happen at their door, but show sympathy to terrorists killing people brutally in China.
Attempting to contain a rising China that they deem is gradually threatening their international status, the West continues providing financing to separatists.
China is confronted with a daunting challenge in eliminating terrorism and guaranteeing public security. The Kunming attack serves as a sober reminder that anti-terror efforts should be exerted across the whole country by increasing public awareness and education, exploring and sharing terror-related intelligence, and promoting collaboration with the international community.

Jihad in China rail station – 29 killed, 143 injured

“They were hacking at people like crazy, they didn’t stop to look,” Qin Gang, a 51-year-old local man who rents out his van, said from a hospital bed after being shot through the lower left arm by a police bullet. He said he joined police and security guards running after a group of assailants as they fled from the station.
Qin said he saw at least five attackers, including two women clad in long robes with only their eyes exposed. They carried knives that were as long as a man’s arm and a few inches wide, he said.
“If nobody tried to stop them a lot more would have been killed,” he said. “Hatred may explain this but is there anything personal at all between them and ordinary people?”
Violent terrorist attacks have been increasing since 2009 and have become the biggest security threat to Xinjiang, Xinhua said. Some 190 terrorist attacks were recorded in the region in 2012, increasing by “a significant margin from 2011,” it said, citing the regional public security bureau.
Tensions between the state and the Muslim Uighur minority in Xinjiang, a resource-rich autonomous region, have spilled over to other parts of the country.
In October, a sport-utility vehicle plowed into a crowd at Tiananmen Square in the center of Beijing and burst into flames, killing the three occupants and two bystanders. Meng, the top security official, said the people in the SUV had links to the East Turkestan Islamic Movement, a militant Uighur group blamed in the past for violence in Xinjiang.
China’s President Xi Jinping ordered a crackdown on “violent terrorist activities” after 33 people died when knife-wielding assailants rampaged through a train station in a southwestern city on March 1.
Local authority officials in Kunming said evidence at the scene showed it was a terrorist attack orchestrated by Xinjiang separatist forces, the state-run Xinhua News Agency reported yesterday. A group promoting human rights for the region’s minority people, the Uighur, called for a transparent investigation.
The assault, days before the annual meeting of the legislature in Beijing, highlights growing social unrest amid widening inequality and increasing tensions between the state and some ethnic groups including the mostly Muslim Uighur minority in Xinjiang. The ruling Communist Party last November set up a state committee to better coordinate security issues as it faces dissent at home and expands its military reach.
At least 29 people killed and 143 injured.

BEIJING—More than 10 people armed with knives rampaged through a train station in southwestern China, killing 29 people and injuring 130 others in what the official Xinhua News Agency called a planned terrorist attack. Xinhua, citing unnamed government officials in the provincial capital of Kunming, identified the assailants in the Saturday night attack as separatists from Xinjiang, China's northwestern region where some members of a mainly Muslim ethnic group, the Uighurs, have fought against Chinese rule. If confirmed, the attack would be one of the deadliest by Uighur separatists in the decadeslong, sometimes violent campaign and would mark a departure in tactics.
