Man Knifes 22 Children and 1 Adult Outside School in China

A knife-wielding man injured 22 children and one adult in China today. It happened outside a rural primary school in Henan Province.

The local newspaper said none of the wounds were fatal but at least two of the children are in intensive care.

The suspect, 36-year-old local resident Min Yingjun, has been detained. Authorities have not given a motive for the attack.

Today’s incident echoes similar one from 2010 that occurred at random around China. Almost 20 children were killed and over 50 people injured in violent attacks near schools.

Some blame China’s poor mental healthcare system. It’s almost non-existent in rural communities like this one.
