One World One [Short] Dream!
A relative of a U.S. men’s volleyball coach was killed and another family member badly injured by a Chinese knifeman in Beijing on Saturday, the first day of competitions at the Olympic Games. A Chinese tour guide was also injured in the stabbing.
“While at the Drum Tower [a 13th Century landmark] in central Beijing, the two family members were stabbed during an attack by what local law enforcement authorities have indicated was a lone assailant. One of the family members was killed and the other seriously injured,” the U.S. Olympic Committee said.
The male assailant, 47, committed suicide by jumping from the tourist site the Drum Tower after the attack, police said.
