This is an act of violence tantamount to terrorist act against the Peoples Republic of China. Whether it is an isolated case or not, such an attack is despicable and disrespect to the sovereignty of a nation. The US government should immediately launch an investigations and catch the culprits and punish them. This is disgraceful in a nation that boasts so much about democracy and human rights.
