At least nine people were killed and 46 others hospitalised after a man drove an SUV deliberately into a crowd in central China before jumping out and attacking victims with a dagger and shovel, local authorities said Thursday, reports AFP.

The attack happened in a public square where Chinese would typically gather to dance in groups or enjoy the cool evening. The SUV apparently appeared suddenly, jumping the curb before plowing into the crowd.
