At least two, and as many as four, assailants wielding long knives wounded six people in an attack on Tuesday at a railway station in China’s southern city of Guangzhou, police and state media said, in the latest of a series of assaults to raise jitters around the country.Police gave no reason for the attack, but China’s nervousness about Islamic militancy has grown since a car burst into flames on the edge of Beijing’s Tiananmen Square in October and 29 people were stabbed to death in March in the southwestern city of Kunming.The government blamed militants from the restive far western region of Xinjiang for both those attacks. Resource-rich and strategically located Xinjiang, on the borders of central Asia, has for years been beset by violence blamed by the Chinese government on Islamist militants.
