    BEIJING (AP) - A knife-wielding Chinese man attacked two relatives of a coach for the U.S. Olympic men's volleyball team at a tourist site in Beijing, killing one and injuring the other on the first day of the Olympics on Saturday, team officials and state media said.

    The man then committed suicide by throwing himself from the second story of the site, the 13th century Drum Tower just five miles from the main Olympics site.

    The brutal attack shortly after midday was all the more shocking because of the rarity of violent crime against foreigners in tightly controlled China, which has ramped up security measures even more for the Olympics.

    When they said "those poor people" they were referring to the family of the man who was murdered. There's not xenophobic about saying that.

    It's funny Blinky. You're the only one bringing race into this. In fact, you're ALWAYS the first to bring race into any thread here. So who's the racist here? You, thats who. Too bad you're so brainwashed by the liberal education system that you're blind to this fact.
