On the evening of November 29, 1913 an Italian waiter named Joseph Giarelli, or Giambelli, wounded at least ten people on a train and at the railway station in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

The 22-year-old was travelling on a train from Nice, and when it approached the station at Monte Carlo he stabbed several people in a first class carriage with a dessert knife. He then jumped out of the waggon and continued his rampage at the platform, until he was subdued by a group of American sailors and railway officials. According to differring reports he either wounded ten, twelve, or twenty people, of whom at least five were taken to hospital, one in serious condition.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10]

  • Major Maud
  • Mr. Frentzel Beynie
  • Mrs. Goehl
  • Mrs. Vincens de Vence
