TAIPEI: A knife-wielding college student killed three people and injured 25, police said, in a rare incident on Taipei's metro on Wednesday.

Police said a motive was not immediately clear, although the man had been drinking alcohol before the attacks.

The Taiwan capital, home to 7.3 million people, is commonly considered a very safe city for its size. (Reuters)
