A knife-wielding terror gang, consisting of eight men and two women, attacked people at a Chinese Railway station on Friday February 28th, killing at least 33 people and injuring 143 others, according to state TV.
The gang launched the horrific attack at Kunming railway station in Yunnan province at around 9pm local time on Friday, in what the Chinese government have described as 'an organised, premeditated, violent terrorist attack'. Four of the attackers were killed by police. 

Photos which were posted online by survivors who took photos of the carnage, showed dead bodies, pools of blood and abandoned luggage scattered across the terminal floor after the attack. 
With 33 dead, this attack is one of the deadliest in recent Chinese history. Continue to see the photos but it's very graphic. *viewer discretion advised*
