Cornell University faculty members were injured in an attack in China, the school said

Four US university tutors are recovering in hospital after they were stabbed by a random attacker in a public park in China.

Iowa Cornell College faculty members were injured in a “serious incident” during a daytime visit to the park in northern China’s Jilin province, a statement from Iowa Cornell University said.

Iowa Representative Adam Zabner said his brother, David, was one of four people injured in what he described as a stabbing.

He said the group was visiting a local temple on Monday when a man attacked them with a knife.

Mr. Zabner said his brother was stabbed in the arm and is recovering in the hospital.

“This morning he has not been released but he is fine,” he told CBS News.

A US State Department spokesperson told the BBC they were aware of reports of a stabbing in Jilin but could not provide further information.

Cornell University said the four faculty members taught “as part of a partnership with a university in China.” The group was accompanied by a member of that university when they visited the park on Monday.

Chinese authorities have yet to respond to the incident, but images of the aftermath have been shared on Chinese social networks.

Images circulated showing at least three people bleeding and lying on the ground.
