Footage taken during a horrific stabbing spree at a Sydney shopping centre yesterday has sparked speculation about whether the killer may have targeted women.

Health Minister Ryan Park said 12 people remain in hospital, including the nine-month-old child, with several said to be in a critical condition. The knifeman was shot dead by a lone female police officer at the scene.

It remains unclear what motivated the attack that has shocked Australia and the world but the current death toll has led some to ask why so many women were killed.
