    China children 'hacked to death' in new school attack

    China children 'hacked to death' in new school attack



    Seven children have been hacked to death in north-western China in the latest in a series of violent attacks on schools, state media report.

    At least 20 others were injured after the attack in Hanzhong city in Shaanxi province, Xinhua news agency reported, citing local authorities.

    China has been shaken by a spate of attacks on schools in recent weeks.

    In March, a man stabbed to death eight pupils at a school in Fujian province, and several similar attacks followed.

    THIS YEAR'S ATTACKS
    12 May: Seven children killed and 20 hurt in Hanzhong, Shaanxi province
    30 April: Five children hurt in hammer attack in Weifang, Shandong
    29 April: Three adults and 28 children injured in Taixing, Jiangsu
    28 April: At least 15 children and one teacher injured in Leizhou, Guangdong
    24 March: Eight children killed in Nanping, Fujian


    A doctor was convicted of the Fujian attack and executed.

    But in the space of a week in late April, three more attacks in different parts of China left dozens of children injured.

    Motives for the attacks are not known, although officials have speculated that the incidents in late April were likely to be copycat attacks.

    Hanzhong city official Liu Xiaoming told the Associated Press news agency that the man who carried out the killings in Hanzhong had killed himself afterwards. This has not been independently confirmed.

    The official also told AP that a teacher had been killed along with the seven children.

    Last month, the education ministry ordered all schools to upgrade their security facilities, teach students about safety and ensure that young children were escorted home.

    But correspondents say such measures are expensive and their effectiveness is unproven.

    It's very strange.
    The pressures on some parents in China must be almost unbearable though.
    My sons preschool now has 3 police assigned to it.

    It would be interesting to know if these attacks are viewed as mercy killings by the attacker so that these innocent children will not grow up into the world they have grown to hate or if there is some other motivation.

    As a bi-line to the article in The New Straits Times here it says that China has close to 180million mentally ill people . . .

    180 million . . . simply an amazing number

    180 million . . . simply an amazing number
    And most of them just wandering the streets.
    The rest deemed mentally ill because they disagree with government policy and aren't afraid to say it.

    And proof that the killing is done by the person and not the implement used.

    Shocking!

    Are you suggesting that this was officially sanctioned?
