Fourteen people have been knifed in a Chinese internet cafe after two men ran amok in a terrifying 20 minute attack.

Most of those hurt in the Beijing attack received knife wounds to the back and face. One woman is in a serious condition, according to the Beijing Times by way of AFP. The motive is not known although there's speculation it could be revenge.

Police have detained a number of suspects in connection with the incident.

Violence at Chinese internet cafes is nothing new. In May staff at one cybercafe resigned after they were beaten up by a gang of 16 teenagers who were barred from entering the cybercafe. The gang of youths beat one worker with bins and fire extinguishers before trashing the premises.

Earlier, two cybercafe workers in Shanghai were chased and killed by a gang of ten men over an argument concerning the use of computers. ®
