Nine people have been hurt after at least two assailants armed with knives attacked people at a train station in southern China.

One of the suspects was fatally shot by police during the incident in Guangzhou, while t he second suspect was captured.

The incident is still under investigation and a motive has not been determined.

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.
