Meat Cleaver-Wielding Attacker Stabs Children On Chinese Playground
A man armed with a meat cleaver rushed onto a playground and slashed eight children during a manic attack at a Chinese elementary school.
Via NY Daily News reports:
No one was killed during the rampage, but eight students — believed to be between 6 and 8 years old — were taken to a local hospital, the London Evening Standard reported. One of the students was seriously injured.
Chinese police arrested the suspect, 35-year-old Chen Zuihang, at the scene, the South China Morning Post reported. Police have not determined a motive.
In 2010, seven students and two teachers were killed during another meat cleaver attack at a school near Hanzhong City. In 2012, another 22 schoolchildren were stabbed at a Chengping school.
Following these kind of horrific stabbings, Chinese governments have urged all schools to hire security guards, the Chinese newspaper reported.
