2013 Etajima stabbing
Location  Etajima, Hiroshima, Japan

On 14 March 2013, Chinese exchange student and intern Chen Shuangxi attacked his co-workers at the Kawaguchi Suisan fish-processing firm in Etajima, Hiroshima, Japan. Two people were killed and six others were injured.



Chen attacked his co-workers with a shovel and a knife. Nobuyuki Kawaguchi, 55, the president of the Kawaguchi Suisan oyster farm, and female co-worker Masako Hashishita, 68, were killed in the attack. One man and five women were injured.


Chen testified that shortly before the incident he heard his name mentioned by colleagues. Hiroshima police believe he may have misunderstood colleagues, thinking they said something negative about him.
