A food blogger was stabbed to death during a livestream by a rival influencer after being ambushed as he filmed himself walking round a market.
Chinese internet sensation Gan Soujiong, 29, was reportedly set upon by Feng Zhengyung, 37, while broadcasting to his five million followers from Kathmandu, Nepal.
The suspect, named as Feng Zhengyung in local reports, is also food blogger who goes by the name named 'Ayun' online.

Gan, who went by the name “Fatty Goes to Africa” online, was filmed chatting to two pals as he walked through an open air market in the city.
But as the group were walking, talking and laughing, a scream can be heard from in front of the camera.
The broadcast was then interrupted by violent shaking and loud screaming before the screen suddenly went black.
A later third-person video shows a visibly dazed Gan sitting on the ground covered in blood while another person — believed to be his attacker — can be heard swearing at him in Chinese.
Half-lying on the ground, Gan can be seen clutching his stomach to observe the injury in the abdomen and gesturing to onlookers to call for emergency services.

Chinese national Feng Zhengyung, 37, was arrested on December 4 on suspicion of killing Gan and injuring his friend, 32-year-old Li Chuzan.
Feng was arrested by the local police in connection with the stabbings.
