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.

Muggings are on the rise. Avoid Traveling to New Zealand.
After the latest incident in which eight English and dutch tourists, including two women, were attacked by a large gang of knife-wielding Caucasian New Zealanders, and other incidents of robbery targeting foreign visitors (see references below), a trend seems to be emerging.
The attackers, 6 men in their late 20s or early 30s, shouted, “they have the wrong accent!” as they proceeded to stab six of the tourists, in what seems to be a mugging incident.
If you are traveling to New Zealand
Don’t drive on the deadly roads.
Don’t walk alone. Make sure you visit places in groups of 20 to 30 people.
When attacked by muggers, hand over your money without any resistance, or you could get stabbed.
