Chinese tour guide wounded in attack recovered

A Chinese tour guide has recovered from injuries sustained in a knife attack that killed one American and injured another on the first day of the Olympic Games in Beijing, state media said Wednesday.
The 26-year-old woman, identified only by her surname, Duan, was discharged Monday from the hospital after an operation and nine days of treatment for chest injuries, the Xinhua News Agency reported.
A Chinese man attacked Duan and the American couple, Todd and Barbara Bachman, on Aug. 9 at the Drum Tower, a popular Beijing tourist site.
Todd Bachman, the father-in-law of U.S. men's volleyball coach Hugh McCutcheon, died. His wife, who was badly wounded, was airlifted from Beijing to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, where she has begun to talk and walk short distances.
The assailant, Tang Yongming, 47, from the eastern city of Hangzhou, killed himself by jumping from a 130-foot (40-meter) high balcony in the tower, just five miles (eight kilometers) from the main Olympics site.
