Thirteen Catholic schoolgirls were stabbed in Japan knife attack.
Two people have died after over dozen schoolchildren from a Catholic school in Japan were stabbed as they waited for their school bus.
A knife-wielding man attacked the group of schoolchildren as they were waiting for a bus in the Japanese city of Kawasaki, near Tokyo.
A 12-year-old girl and a 39-year-old man are dead. The attacker, a man in his 50s, stabbed himself in the neck after the attack and has died.
The 13 injured girls are believed to be aged from six to 12, and are reportedly pupils at Caritas Catholic primary school. The school was founded by Canadian missionaries in 1961.
The attack began at 7:45am near a bus stop at Noborito station, according to media reports. Police found two knifes nearby.
