Knife Attack on Blogger

Zeng Jinyan wrote yesterday that blogger and writer Xu Lai (徐来) was attacked with a knife (or knives) on Valentine’s Day. She also heard that his condition was stable.

According to Singapore’s Lianhe Zaobao (Morning News), Mr Xu was attacked by two unknown men during a public discussion in a bookshop in Beijing, Danxiang Jie Book Store on Wan Da Square (单向街书店万达广场). Morning News also reported that Mr Xu’s condition is not life-dangerous. The attack was apparently carried out by people who disliked what he wrote.

His blog – 钱烈宪要发言 or ProState in Flames – is here. It won the Voice of Germany’s “Best Blog” prize in 2005, according to Morning News.

  1. Wan Da Square is just minutes’ walk way from my old office!

    It’s an offfice block area very close to Beijing’s CDB – lots of security cameras there. The knifers have no way to get away.
