Seven schoolchildren have reportedly been killed and another 12 injured after being attacked by a knife-wielding man near their school in north-west China.

The incident occurred at around 6:10pm local time today in Mizhi County, Shaanxi Province, said a statement released by the authority of Mizhi.

The children are said to have been attacked on their way back home from school.


The official outlet also reported Zhao's attack as an act of revenge.

It's said that the man had been bullied while studying at the Number Three Middle School of Mizhi County, and he was still angry about the fact.

I did a study from media compilations a while back and China has a mass killing problem just as bad as we do, only they use knives, axes, swords, matches.... Just another example.

Carrying a gun is a right, not a crime.

I agree, they sure do have a mass killing problem.

They also have that problem but the government uses guns when they do it.

Earned the death penalty

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... -nine.html

A man in China was sentenced to death today after launching a deadly knife attack on schoolchildren in April.

Knife-wielding Zhao Zewei, said to be 28, assaulted a group of pupils outside the Number Three Middle School of Mizhi County, killing nine and wounding 12 others.

In a statement, the court described Zhao's attack as an act of revenge.

It said Zhao used to study at the school and he thought he was laughed at by his classmates at the time. Therefore, he held a grudge and plotted the assault.

Initially, he planned to attack his former classmates, however he failed to find them. As a result, Zhao decided to attack the school's current pupils.

Zhao bought five knives through the internet in March and April.
