We’re still stuck in the dark about the mysterious shooting at a mall in China.
As a result, we’re unable to determine whether the incident was a random act of violence or if there’s a wider connection to recent domestic unrest.
It’s not yet clear what caused the shooting, which took place at a shopping mall in the city of Nanjing.
The incident is being investigated by the local police and security forces, according to Chinese media reports.
The Chinese authorities say they are “actively investigating” the shooting and are trying to find out the motive behind it.
It’s unclear whether any of the victims were Chinese citizens.
Chinese President Xi Jinping has been critical of the government’s response to recent events.
The Communist Party has also banned demonstrations, a move that has also been met with protests across the country.
More on the shooting: On Tuesday, President Xi spoke with the family of a victim of the attack.
On Wednesday, China’s foreign ministry issued a statement saying it was “deeply concerned” about the incident, and called for restraint and “respectful coexistence”.
We urge the authorities to immediately take all necessary measures to prevent such incidents from happening in the future, the ministry said.
