Shanghai (China) – A man armed with a knife attacked students at the entrance to a primary school in Shanghai’s central Xuhui district on Thursday, killing two of the children, police said.<br>
The 29-year-old man attacked three male students and one female parent with a vegetable knife around 11:30 a.m. (0330 GMT), the Xuhui branch of the Shanghai police said on its official Weibo account.<br>
The victims were rushed to hospital but two of the students died, it said, adding that the third student and the parent were not in a life-threatening condition.</p>
<p>The man, who was arrested at the scene, was unemployed and angry at society, the police said. A video circulated on Chinese social media platform Weibo showed people tying up the attacker with rope on a roadside pavement.
<p>Violent crime is rare in China compared with many other countries, especially in major cities where security is tight, but there has been a series of knife and axe attacks in recent years, many targeting children.</p>
<p>In April, a 28-year-old man who harbored a hatred of children having been bullied at school stabbed to death seven Chinese middle school students who were on their way from classes in the northwestern province of Shaanxi.</p>
<p>Such attacks are often blamed on people with mental illness or who have personal grievances. Knives are most commonly used because gun controls are extremely strict in China.
