china kindergarten stabbing 2022

Three people were killed and six wounded on Wednesday in a stabbing at a kindergarten in the Chinese province of Jianxi, the AFP news agency reported, citing police.

A "gangster wearing a cap and mask" stormed the private kindergarten, the news agency said on Twitter, adding that the 48-year-old suspect was at large.

The news agency did not give any more details on the victims.

Violent crimes are rare in China, due in part to strict gun controls and tight security, but in recent years there have been several stabbing attacks, including in schools.
