BEIJING: Chinese police shot dead a man on Friday after he ploughed his car into pedestrians, killing six people, state television reported.

Seven people were injured and were in the hospital, state television added. It gave no other details.

There have been several similar incidents in China in recent years.

In September 2018, at least 11 people were killed when a car drove onto a crowded square in southern China and the driver attacked people with a knife and spade seeking “revenge” on society for previous criminal convictions.
