At least seven people have been killed by a knife-wielding attacker in north-eastern China, media reports say.
Another seven people were reported wounded in the mass stabbing, which took place in Kaiyuan, a small city in Liaoning province.
Police have arrested a suspect, the state-run Xinhua news agency reports, although a motive remains unclear.
Witnesses described seeing a man stabbing people seemingly at random.
Violent crime is relatively rare in China, but the country has seen unrelated knife attacks in recent years. END
