Four Chinese citizens were stabbed to death in a bakery on Monday in Papua New Guinea's capital of Port Moresby, with one victim's head nearly chopped off by the murderers.
The Xinhua News Agency also reports that local employees at the murder site were not attacked.
The attack was confirmed by the Chinese Embassy in Papua New Guinea.
Wang Zejun, son of victim Wang Jianguo, cried that his father had planned to return home in 2014 to celebrate his birthday, but now the whole family was in sadness and despair.
Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a regular press briefing that the Chinese Embassy in Papua New Guinea has attached great importance to the incident and immediately launched an emergency mechanism to deal with the incident.
She said the Chinese ambassador to Papua New Guinea has called an emergency meeting with senior officials of Papua New Guinea, asked police in the country to apprehend the attackers and bring them to justice as oon as possible and take measures to guarantee the safety and legitimate rights of Chinese citizens.
The embassy has sent consular officials to assist local police in their investigation, she added.
Papua New Guinea's Prime Minister Peter O'Neill Wednesday condemned the killing in a statement and called the attack "brutal and cowardly," adding that an investigation is under way.
He expressed deep condolences to the victims' families.
The Foreign Ministry and the Chinese Embassy in Papua New Guinea will pay close attention to the case's progress and make all-out efforts to help the victims' relatives handle the aftermath, Hua said.

China will solve this diplomatically . They will not send drones nor troops to flatten Papua, New Guinea. China will do the right thing.

Tough place but I heard you can find a lot of Filipina prostitutes in Port Moresby so it can't be all bad.
