A parking attendant, who was standing nearby, said he could not believe what was happening when he saw the attackers.

"I walked out and I saw a person with a knife this big," he said, spreading his arms wide.

"Then I saw five or six of them. They all had knives and they were stabbing people madly over by the first and second ticket offices," he said.
