Henan executes man who kills baby girl on bus
(03-26 18:52)

A man in central China's Henan Province was executed on Wednesday for a knife attack that killed three, including a 10-month-old girl, on a bus last year, according to Henan High People's Court.
Zhou Jiangbo, 24, from Neihuang County in Anyang City, also injured 16 other people during the attack.
On August 18, Zhou attacked three neighbors with a shovel following a dispute and then fled. The next day, wrongly believing two of his seriously injured neighbors had died, Zhou bought two knives and planned a killing spree.
Zhou boarded a public bus and tried to take control of the steering wheel from the driver, causing the vehicle to collide with a truck.
He then stabbed the bus driver, ticket seller and passengers, leaving three dead and four seriously injured. Twelve others sustained lesser injuries. A 10-month-old girl and two boys aged 10 and 18 died.
Zhou was caught by police on August 20.
Anyang Intermediate People's Court sentenced Zhou to death on December 10. The sentence was later reviewed by Henan High People's Court and approved by the Supreme People's Court. --Xinhua
