BEIJING (AP) — A Chinese court on Friday upheld the death sentences of three men convicted of organizing a brutal knife attack that killed 31 people earlier this year outside a railway station in the southern city of Kunming.

The Higher People's Court of Yunnan Province rejected appeals and upheld sentences handed out last month by a lower court, saying that the three men "all played a role in organizing, leading and plotting the terrorist activities at the Kunming Railway Station."
