9 killed after SUV plows into crowd in central China

9 killed after SUV plows into crowd in central China”

The red vehicle drove onto Binjiang square in Mishui town, part of Hengyang city in Hunan province, at approximately 11.40 BST (7.40pm local time), the Hengyang government said in a statement.

Police arrested the suspected driver of a red SUV that plowed into a large group of people at the square in the seat of Hengdong county in Hunan Province, according to a government microblog account.

Videos shared on Chinese social media showed the immediate aftermath of the attack.

The death toll has risen to 11 with another 44 people hospitalised after a man allegedly drove an SUV deliberately into a crowd in central China before jumping out and attacking victims with a dagger and shovel, local authorities said Thursday. Local officials said these clashes with the law had caused Yang to harbor a desire to exact "revenge on society". There was no mention of terrorism or any other motive.

The government statement called the attack a "malicious case of intentional driving" and said a man had been taken into custody.

The suspect is thought to have served several prison sentences for convictions including arson, drug trafficking and assault.

The government is generally nervous about such incidents after a auto ploughed through pedestrians in the northern part of Beijing's Tiananmen Square in 2013, killing the three people in the vehicle and two bystanders. Three people are said to be seriously wounded. Police blamed the attack on Muslim separatists from the Uighur ethnic minority group. Islamist extremists claimed responsibility for both attacks.
