US Media Reports Four American Educators Stabbed in Northeast China Park


June 11 :
A public park in northeast China's Jilin province was the scene of a stabbing attack on June 10th, injuring four American professors from a small university in Iowa, according to US media and US government officials. Adam Zabner, a representative from Iowa, told Reuters that his brother was a victim. According to my brother David Zabner, who was visiting a temple in Jilin City, China, he was stabbed in the arm.

He went on to say that a man brandishing a knife attacked the group as they were touring a temple in Beishan Park. A motive has not been revealed.

There was no mention of the footage on Chinese social media on June.10, but it was X-circulating and showed people sprawled out on the ground in a park, covered in blood. A combination of the path's arrangement, the structure of the wall, and the Chinese characters engraved on the wall allowed Reuters to pinpoint the exact spot. Reuters was unable to verify the exact time of the video's recording.

Chinese authorities have not commented on the occurrence, and there are no stories about it in Chinese media.

David is doing well after his injuries; I just chatted with him. According to Adam Zabner, his family is extremely thankful that David was able to survive the incident. The Cornell College faculty were in Jilin City to visit Beihua, a partner university.

Mariannette Miller-Meeks, a congresswoman from Iowa, wrote on X that her office is "working through proper channels" and has asked to speak with the US embassy about relevant issues in order to guarantee that the victims get decent medical treatment for their injuries before they can be medically evacuated from China.

Regarding the "terrifying attack," Governor Kim Reynolds of Iowa communicated with the US Department of State via X.

According to college spokeswoman Jen Visser, who talked with CNN, the US State Department is keeping tabs on rumours of a stabbing event in China.

Although President Xi Jinping of China has promised to host 50,000 American youth for study programmes in China this year in an effort to strengthen people-to-people ties, the United States Department of State has issued a Level 3 travel advice about China, citing concerns about arbitrary imprisonment and exit prohibitions. According to US data, there are currently more than 290,000 Chinese students studying in the US, while there are less than 900 American exchange students studying in China.
