At least 12 school children
were injured on Wednesday when a man with a knife
attacked them at a kindergarten in China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
The man slashed the children
with a kitchen knife
after entering the Xiaocongzai kindergarten in Youyi Township, Pingxiang City local police said.
The suspect claimed he was at the kindergarten to pick up his child, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
Three seriously injured children
have been sent to a hospital in Nanning, the regional capital, for treatment.
The suspect is in police custody.
Social revenge attacks by disgruntled people targeting kindergarten schools have become common in China.
