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.

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.

A doctor at Guangshan's hospital of traditional Chinese medicine said that seven students had been admitted, but that none were seriously injured.

Neither the hospital administrator nor the doctor would give his name.

Children likely between 6-11 years old

It was not clear how old the injured children were, but Chinese primary school pupils are generally 6-11 years old.

A notice posted on the Guangshan county government's website confirmed the number of injured and said an emergency response team had been set up to investigate the attacks.

No motive was given for the stabbings, which echo a string of similar assaults against schoolchildren in 2010 that killed nearly 20 and wounded more than 50. The most recent such attack took place in August, when a knife-wielding man broke into a middle school in the southern city of Nanchang and stabbed two students before fleeing.

Most of the attackers have been mentally disturbed men involved in personal disputes or unable to adjust to the rapid pace of social change in China, underscoring grave weaknesses in the antiquated Chinese medical system's ability to diagnose and treat psychiatric illness.

In one of the worst incidents, a man described as an unemployed, middle-aged doctor killed eight children with a knife in March 2010 to vent his anger over a thwarted romantic relationship.

So you're saying a spree attack of a similar nature, sans a gun, resulted in significantly less loss of life?

Those two dozen kids who will have more birthdays and grow up and have their own families sure did prove your point.

Hell, I get most of my news from Chiefsplanet. Thinking back over the past few years, the only major stories I can think of that I didn't get from here were 9/11 and Sadaam being captured.
On 9/11 I happened to be watching the boob tube during a break in class and during the capture I was in Iraq.

There's this crazy little thing called "immigration law" that I kind of have to deal with first. It's SLIGHTLY complicated.

But then, fantasy-land solutions to real life problems do seem to be what you guys deal in. Thanks for the consistency, at least.

Rules of immigrations The rules of immigration mean among other things that a person from a non-Nordic country wishing to settle or work in Sweden must obtain a residence and work permit first, before coming here. If he applies for a permit after entering the country, the Immigration Board can refuse his application for that reason alone, without examining his grounds for applying.

So, in this particular incident, NOBODY was killed.

That's not my contention. The fact is that people were killed by knives in a stabbing spree perpetrated against children. There have been several of these attacks. We'd do more of a service to our kids to find out why these attacks happen than react primarily to the choice of weapon.

BTW here's the fuller info on those attacks. At least you can't fault the chinese judicial system for moving too slowly....

Following a quick trial, Zheng Minsheng was executed about one month later on April 28.

At least it took a year to reach twenty with knives, not a period of recess or a movie preview.

Yup, true. I'm a little on edge and probably still in a bit of shock from the school shooting. I guess I'm still lumping a lot of these attacks together, trying to make peace with the whole thing. She's probably doing the same thing.
