A woman has been killed outside a Uniqlo store in Sanlitun, Beijing, after she was attacked by a man who was reportedly wielding a Japanese samurai sword, according to Xinhua.
In a graphic video, the victim was seen lying on the floor in a pool of blood. It was reported that she was then taken to hospital accompanied by a friend. The man was subdued by police on the scene, according to Apple Daily.
The report claimed that the attacker and the victim were hawkers who had been fighting over the same site. The Oriental Daily said the attacker had no specific target.
Xinhua reported that a French man was also injured.
The same clothing store had been the centre of a scandal last month, when a video of a couple having sex in the fitting room went viral.
