Another shocking subway attack took place in Taipei City late Monday, a year after a fatal knife attack at MRT Jiangzicui Station which claimed 4 lives and wounded 24. Police officer said that a 27-year-old jobless man wielded a knife in a random attack inside MRT Zhongshan Station at nearly 9 pm, the peak hour for that station.

The man, surnamed Kuo, told police that he committed the crime because he has been jobless for a long time and was in bad mood, police officer said.

A witness who identified herself by her family name Chen told the media that she heard a woman yelling, “He has a knife!” twice before seeing a man bleeding in the left shoulder and other people nearby wounded.

“I did not see the suspect wielding his knife. I just saw him moving forward as the man near him had already been wounded,” Chen added.     [FULL  STORY]
