BEIJING, Apr 22 (AP) -- A man fatally stabbed two Filipino tourists in central Beijing and wounded a third, Philippine authorities and Chinese state media said Friday.
The Philippine foreign affairs department identified the slain tourists as Emmanuel Madrigal and his daughter, Regina Mia. Authorities didn't release the name of the injured person nor their condition.
Police arrested a 25-year-old man, identified only by the surname "Wang," at the scene, the Beijing Morning Post reported. He is from eastern China's Jiangsu province.
The Philippine government and the Chinese newspaper differed over details about the attack, with the Philippine foreign affairs department saying it happened on Tuesday in Tiananmen Square, and the newspaper saying it took place at the Workers Cultural Palace near the square.
It was not clear why the accounts were different, nor was the man's motive. The Beijing Morning Post said Wang, wanted to "affect society using extreme actions," but didn't elaborate.
