Martial arts expert kills two raiders

A Chinese martial arts expert was in custody yesterday after turning the
tables on four burglars armed with knives, killing two of them and
seriously wounding a third.

The 28-year-old man, known as "the doctor" for his practice of
acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine, managed to seize one of the
two knives carried by his assailants and saw off the entire group with
the ferocity of his reaction.

Magistrates in the central Italian town of Empoli are now seeking to
establish whether his self-defence constituted an excessive use of force.

The butchery, worthy of a Quentin Tarantino film, began shortly before
midnight on Friday when the four men knocked at the apartment of a
Chinese hairdresser in the centre of Empoli.

The hairdresser, her assistant and "the doctor", who operated from the

same premises, were reportedly overpowered and tied up before the group,
all thought to be in their 20s and 30s, ransacked the apartment.

Disappointed by their meagre booty, the attackers allegedly threatened to
rape the two women unless they told them where the rest of their money
was hidden.

At this point the doctor managed to free himself, seize a knife from one
of the aggressors and deliver a series of lethal stab wounds.

Investigators found the body of one man, who had been stabbed in the
heart, sprawled on the staircase and another man bleeding to death in the
street from a wound to his leg. A third man is recovering in hospital
from a punctured lung.

The doctor was found crouching in the entrance to the building with cuts
to his shoulder, face and hands.

Investigators are trying to determine whether he inflicted the injuries
while defending himself inside the apartment, or hunted down the burglars
after they had fled.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do

Let's hope that justice will prevail on the part of the "doctor".
