A car drove into a crowd of pedestrians in the northeastern Chinese port city of Dalian, killing five on Sunday, MTO News has learned. Now Chinese police are calling the killing an act of “revenge against society” by the man who lost all his money during the recent Bitcoin crash.
The man, who local media is calling Liu, and in his 30s, killed five people and injured another five after plowing his car through a busy pedestrian crossing in the northeastern Chinese city of Dalian.
