Police rushed to a train station in South Korea this afternoon following a knife rampage that left at least 13 people injured.
Authorities in Bundang, Gyeonggi Province, said they received a report of someone on a stabbing spree in Seohyeon Station at around 5.59pm local time (9.59am UK time) today (Thursday, August 3).
Reports suggest a car ploughed into people on the pavement before the knifeman got out. There have been suggestions that a second suspect was behind the wheel.

Police said they arrested the knifeman just six minutes later at 6.05pm.
Korean news outlets report 12 out of 13 victims have been transferred to either Bundang Jesaeng Hospital, Cha Hospital, and Seoul National University Hospital for emergency treatment.
Four of the victims were injured during the car crash, the rest suffered stab wounds. The extent of their injuries is yet to emerge.
Police are still thought to be hunting for a second suspect as they continue to investigate the exact circumstances and motive behind the attack.
This news comes as Britain's youngest female murderer Sharon Carr, known as the 'Devil's Daughter', could be released from prison.
Carr was just 12-years-old when she stabbed stranger Katie Rackliff, 18, to death. She plunged a knife into Katie more than 30 times after she spotted her walking home from a night out in June 1992.
The murder was finally solved two years later when Carr boasted about knifing Katie while banged up in a young offender's institution. The twisted child even wrote in her diary about what she had done.
Now, more than 30 years on from the stabbing, Carr is about to find out if she will be freed from prison with a parole review coming up.
A source told the Mirror: "There have been signs in prison that she’s still a danger." They added: "She’s been in solitary confinement. No one will want to see her released."
