Knife attack in a shopping center in Australia, 4 victims are reported
A major police operation is underway at Sydney's Westfield Bondi Junction shopping centre. Four people are said to have lost their lives as a result of a knife attack.

Seven people were injured, among them a mother and her 9-month-old baby. They were immediately sent to the hospital to receive appropriate treatment.

Witnesses say a man was chasing and stabbing people before the Westfield center in Sydney's eastern suburbs was evacuated and locked down.

According to information, the perpetrators were two, one of whom was shot dead by the police.

A witness, who today locked herself inside a store, said she heard shots and screams.

"We are absolutely horrified," she said.

The injured people were immediately sent to the hospital, while the police started investigations into the tragic event and the arrest of the perpetrator.
