36-Year-Old Man Slashed 22 School Children With Knife

A knife-wielding man slashed 22 children and an adult at an elementary school in central China on Friday, state media reported, the latest in a series of attacks on schoolchildren in the country.

The man attacked the children at the gate of a school in Chenpeng village in Henan province, the Xinhua news agency reported.

Police arrested a 36-year-old man, identified as villager Min Yingjun, Xinhua said. It did not give further details of the extent of the injuries.

It would be recalled that there have been a series of attacks on schools and school children around China lately prompting public calls for more measures to protect the young in a country where many couples only have one child.
