BEJING – Chinese man attacks 22 children, 1 adult with knife outside primary school

A knife-wielding man injured 22 children and one adult outside a primary school in central China as students were arriving for classes Friday, police said, the latest in a series of periodic rampage attacks at Chinese schools and kindergartens.

The attack in the Henan province village of Chengping happened shortly before 8 a.m., said a police officer from Guangshan county, where the village is located.


XINYANG, Dec. 14, 2012 (Xinhua) -- Xie Xinye, a primary school student injured in a knifeattack, receives medical treatment in hospital in Guangshan County, central China's Henan Province, Dec. 14, 2012. Twenty-two school children and a villager were injured in the knife attack which happened at the entrance of Chenpeng Village Primary School in Wenshu Township of Guangshan County on Friday morning, according to local authorities. Local police said they had seized the suspect, a 36-year-old villager named Min Yingjun. The case is under investigation.
The attacker, 36-year-old villager Min Yingjun, is now in police custody, said the officer, who declined to give her name, as is customary among Chinese civil servants.

A Guangshan county hospital administrator said the man first attacked an elderly woman, then students, before being subdued by security guards who have been posted across China following a spate of school attacks in recent years. He said there were no deaths among the nine students admitted, although two badly injured children had been transferred to better-equipped hospitals outside the county.
