“We are working through proper channels and requesting to speak with the US Embassy on appropriate matters to ensure that the victims first receive quality care for their injuries and then get out of China in a medically feasible manner,” Iowa’s Congress representative Mariannette Miller-Meeks wrote on X.

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds wrote on X that she was in touch with the US State Department on the “horrifying” attack.

College spokesperson Jen Visser told CNN the stabbing incident happened in Jilin City and the partner China school was Beihua University.
