According to Yonhap news, a 61 year-old Korean woman had passed away on Sunday after being stabbed in what appeared to be an unprovoked incident by a Chinese tourist.
The woman was praying alone inside the church alone early on Saturday morning when the 50 year-old Chinese tourist stabbed the Korean woman in the chest and abdomen.
She called for help and was rushed to a nearby hospital.
Although the Chinese tourist had fled the scene, he was later nabbed approximately 40 kilometers away from the scene of the incident several hours later.
The tourist claimed that he had stabbed the woman as he had a deep hatred toward women after his first and second wives had extramarital affairs before and then ran away.
