Police in south China said six passengers have been injured in a hacking attack at one of the country’s busiest train stations.

Guangzhou police said on their microblog that the incident happened on Tuesday morning at Guangzhou Railway Station. The statement said police shot and subdued a male suspect who had a knife. It wasn’t clear from the statement whether there was more than one attacker.

Police said six people have been injured and taken to hospital, not including the suspect.

No possible motive for the attack was given.

In March, another hacking attack at a train station in south-west China left 33 dead.
