Knife-wielding man attacks 11 children after scaling fence of a nursery in China

A man wielding a knife went on a rampage in a nursery school in China and attacked a group of children. According to Chinese media reports, the yet-to-be identified 41-year-old man scaled a wall and attacked 11 children at the school located in Pingxiang, a city in the southern region of Guangxi. He claimed he was there to pick up his son but allegedly climbed a wall to enter the facility.

None of the children sustained life-threatening injuries and the wounded were taken to the hospital for treatment (Blurred photo above reportedly shows some of the kids).

The suspect has since been detained by police but his motive is not yet known. He has also allegedly refused to give his full name to the authorities after the arrest. Important to note is that there has been a series of knife and axe attacks in recent years in China, with many targeting children.
