Man shoots judges in Chinese court
Wednesday 02 June 2010
A man firing an automatic weapon burst into a court office in central China, fatally shooting three judges and wounding three other people before killing himself.
The shooting spree was one of at least three violent incidents reported yesterday, after a spate of public attacks that has shocked China.
The court attacker was identified as the head of security at a post office in Hunan province. Zhu Jun, 46, held a grudge against the court because three years ago it had ruled against him in a property dispute with his wife, whom he was divorcing.
In two other incidents, a woman on an overnight train in northeastern China slashed fellow passengers with a piece of metal, wounding nine people as they slept. And in Henan Province, a man trying to halt the demolition of homes in his village drove a lorry into a group of workers, killing three and injuring 13 others.
