A student in Hefei, Anhui Province, was axed to death in the library at Anhui Medical University, according to the Global Times.
The victim, surnamed Tan, 23, a senior student majoring in biomedical engineering of Anhui Medical University based in the provincial capital of Hefei, was killed at about 7:45 a.m.
He was axed to death in a classroom on the sixth floor of the library, a Hefei municipal public security official said.
A witness said Tan was attacked in the neck.
The attacker, surnamed Hu, 23, a senior student majoring in clinical medicine in the same university, has been detained by police.
The cause for the brutal attack has not yet been determined. Hopefully it won’t be related to the stupid 2012 disaster rumours that have gripped the country (you may have noticed that the world hasn’t ended today).
