    American murdered in Beijing!

    He was the father-in-law of our men's volleyball team!

    [QUOTE]By ROHAN SULLIVAN


    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.

    The stabbing came only hours after what by many accounts was the most spectacular opening ceremony in Olympic history and it has already dampened some of the enthusiasm.[/QUOTE]

    The elderly are more revered in China than in most western cultures. The fact that the oldest person in the group was attacked points to an extreme hatred for westerners.

    There isn't any major city in China that it isn't safer to be in as a Westerner than any city in the US.
