BEIJING (AP) -- At least two assailants armed with knives attacked people at a train station in southern China on Friday, injuring nine, and police fatally shot one of the suspects, officials said.

The second suspect was captured, police in the city of Guangzhou said in a statement. The incident was still under investigation and a motive has not been determined, police said.

Photos and video posted on social media reportedly showed the attack took place in a square outside the station. One video showed a man hacking near a vendor stall with a cleaver while a security officer approached with a long baton. Several photos showed blood smeared in several places on the rain-soaked pavement.

A knife attack at a train station in the southern city of Kunming about a year ago claimed 29 lives. Authorities blamed separatists from the western province of Xinjiang.

China has also suffered a spate of knife attacks on schoolchildren carried out by people lashing out over personal problems.
