Many of the victims of a frenzied knife attack in the Pacific nation of Guam had been on the island to attend a wedding, it emerged Thursday, as the death toll from the attack rose to three. 

Security guards clear an area at a resort in Guam on February 13, 2013, where at least three people have died after a frenzied attack by a crazed motorist. The death toll from the attack on Japanese tourists rose to three on Thursday when a man mowed down by the killer's car succumbed to his injuries, officials said.

Survivors and witnesses told of their horror as a man clutching foot-long (30 centimetre) knives in each hand launched a bloody attack on unsuspecting holidaymakers after ploughing into them with his car.
