Chinese man sentenced to death for fatal bus attack

Beijing: A Chinese court on Tuesday sentenced a man to death for a murderous knife attack in a bus that left three dead and 16 others injured in August.

Zhou Jiangbo, 24, was convicted of intentional homicide and "endangering public security" by the Anyang Intermediate People`s Court in the central Henan Province.

On August 18, Zhou attacked three neighbours with a shovel after a dispute and then fled.

The next day, wrongly believing two of his seriously injured neighbours had died, Zhou bought two knives and a steel bar and planned a killing spree at venues like bus stations and hospitals, the court verdict said.

Zhou boarded a bus in Baibi Township and tried to snatch the steering wheel, which caused the vehicle to collide with a truck.

He then stabbed the driver, conductor and passengers, leaving three dead and four seriously injured. Twelve others sustained minor injuries.

The dead included a 10-month-old girl and two boys aged 10 and 18.

Zhou was caught by police on August 20.

He said in court that he would not appeal the sentence, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
