Some info received from a local official. Some paraphrased: this is not official and is not a direct quote:
...terrorists — all of them are Muslim zealots from Xinjiang — equipped with long swords sneaked into the Station Square and started killing people at around 9:20pm. Most people didn't realize what happened at the beginning so many of them were killed and injured. The terrorists kept killing all the way to the ticket center and went back to the square. Several policemen on patrol were trying to fight them. Unfortunately, they were not equipped with weapons. They had to fight them with wooden sticks or anything they could pick up. Two security people were cut to death. Those monsters didn't stop killing until two armed patrol units came (....) later. However, these officers did not have enough ammunition. The terrorists seemed not to be afraid of death. An officer stumbled and fell onto the ground, five of the terrorists ran to him and attacked him. They almost killed him. Several special police units then showed up and controlled the situation. They shot four terrorists down and wounded one, and then arrested her. The rest of the killers made an escape. ....three were caught yesterday and early this afternoon. This is not the worst part. The most terrible part is that they were killing kids and the aged! A five-year-old girl was saved from serious injury while she does not know both here parents were killed at that night!
For those voicing negative thoughts about the police: unless you were there - Shut Up! People who risked their life (and died) trying to protect you against knife-wielding terrorists by using only sticks.
For Andrew: I spent a career as a US Navy SEAL and will not publicly disclose tactics. However, I question some of your statements and would like you to identify source(s) of your expertise.
For suicidal terrorists, take them out as quick as possible because death or serious injury is all that will stop them.
Will there be collateral damage? Of course.
We currently have Chinese students in Cornell, Univ of Minnesota (Finance), Texas Tech, and Univ of South Carolina - plus one doing "special studies" in England. But I don't take the credit as they are all hard workers (and probably smarter than I am!!)
