SA condemns terrorist attack in China

2014-03-03 13:07

Cape Town  - The South African government condemned on Monday a terrorist attack in China in which 29 people died at the weekend.

More than 130 people were wounded when knife-wielding attackers indiscriminately slashed at people queuing for tickets at the Kunming railway station in southern China late on Saturday.

Police shot dead four of the attackers.

"The South African government condemns all forms and manner of terrorism," said international relations department spokesperson Clayson Monyela.

"We believe that terrorism in any form and from whichever quarter cannot be condoned."

Chinese authorities have blamed the attack on ethnic separatists from the far west.

    And the citizens of SA condemn the ruling of pathetic governments!

  • Jacqui Daane Van Rensburg - 2014-03-03 13:16

    The South African government should first condemn all the violence here at home, before it starts condemning things elsewhere.

      Yes condemn the Richmond Farm attack as well you usless bunch of ANC government - old people attacked by a bunch of cowards. And News 24 stop closing articles when things get a little close to home. You are protecting the government - (No Capital G for them) - you are practicing censoring.

    ...this current government of ours are a real bunch of acolytes and arse-kissers.

  • Victor Mendes - 2014-03-03 13:39

    ANC worries more about other countries people then its own, makes me sick!

  • Piet Snot714 - 2014-03-03 13:40

    Yet they - the ANC - were quite prepared to bomb all sorts of soft targets and kill citizens (black and white may I say - and many of them in their own so called 'training camps')of South Africa.

    We like condemning crap in this country, as if that achieves some goal.

  • Meryl Pather - 2014-03-03 13:52

      Don't forget about a 76-year-old farmer, his 65-year-old wife and their 33-year-old son were burnt to death in an attack on their farm, police said on Monday. They were attacked on their farm near Richmond shortly after midday on Sunday, they were burnt alive.

  • Sharonese Pillay - 2014-03-03 13:59

  • Dean Berzen - 2014-03-03 14:02

    This government is so quick to respond to anything going on in China, you would think we were China

      Barend Kruger - 2014-03-03 14:52

      Judging by this government's performance, we soon will be.

  • Russel Dean Jones - 2014-03-03 14:05

    China and the ANC... a match forged in Hell.

  • David Peterson - 2014-03-03 14:09

    And yet not a word on the atrocities happening right here in Africa like the human rights violations rampant in Uganda. Our government are a bunch of pathetic pandering hypocrites!

  • AndrĂ© Van Wyk - 2014-03-03 15:28

    The hypocrites have spoken

  • Philip Schalkwyk - 2014-03-03 15:30

    NEWS 24. Is it really necessary to have a picture of a bloody knife and blood splatters illustrated in the story??

  • Jabulani Dolane - 2014-03-03 15:36

    zuma must first condemn corruption here in SA BANANA REPUBLIC

  • No Sugarcoating - 2014-03-03 16:33

    What the hell!!! Comments are still open on this article, whereas comments have been closed on "3 burn to death in farm attack" - 2014-03-03 13:07. Comments were open for exactly 2 hours What happens in China is more newsworthy I suppose.

      Barend Kruger - 2014-03-03 16:43

      I've been on about it too, no reply of course. Farm murders occur almost daily, yet there seems to be a media blackout about it. Why is that?

  • Craig Thom - 2014-03-03 16:55

    It really does not matter internationally what South Africa thinks

  • Martin Bekker - 2014-03-03 17:08

    Yes Clayson Monyela you condemn terrorist attacks but you say nothing about white farmers being murdered in SA every day. Your silence signifies agreement and condonement. Shove it up your arse!
