Chinese language paper said to report that bus beheader is a Muslim

A commenter at says that the beheader is a Muslim, “according to what acquaintances of his reported to the Chinese language newspaper World Journal, mentioned in a page A2 article today (Saturday August 2).”

While none of us can read Chinese to my knowledge, we could contact World Journal and ask them if there’s anything to this.

According to Wikipedia:

World Journal (officially known as Chinese Daily News in Los Angeles) is a daily Chinese language newspaper serving overseas Chinese in North America. It is published in major cities containing large Chinese-speaking population including Atlanta, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Houston in the United States as well as Toronto and Vancouver in Canada. The newspaper is widely sold in many Chinatowns in these cities and other predominant Chinese suburbia, in addition to subscription by mail available throughout the U.S. and Canada.
