Chinese kindergarten children injured in knife attack

Breaking News image

At least 14 children have been injured in a knife attack at kindergarten in Chongqing, China.

Police say a 39-year-old woman carrying a kitchen knife entered the school in Banan district on Friday morning, as the children were in the playground.

The motive for the attack is unclear, though some reports on social media say the woman had a grievance against the government.

The woman, whose surname was given as Liu, was arrested at the scene.

Police have denied media reports that two children died, using social media to urge people not to pass on “rumours”.

China has faced a string of unrelated knife attacks in school and kindergartens in recent years.

They have usually been carried out by people seeking revenge against officials or individuals, or who are suffering from mental health problems.
