    7 children, 2 adults killed in China school attack

    Beijing, China (CNN) -- The death toll from an attack at a kindergarten in northwestern China rose to nine Wednesday after one of the wounded victims died, state media said.

    A man with a kitchen cleaver hacked to death a teacher and seven kindergarten students -- five boys and two girls. He then returned home and committed suicide, state media said.

    The teacher's mother, who was wounded in the attack, later died at a hospital -- bringing the toll to nine, the Xinhua news agency said.

    Officials do not yet know what prompted the 48-year-old man to attack students at a private school in Shaanxi province.

    It was at least the fourth such attack on school children in the last month.

    In addition to the fatalities, 11 children were wounded in the attack. Among them were two children who were hospitalized in serious condition, Xinhua said.

    Twenty children attended the school.

    On April 30, a man armed with a hammer injured five preschool children in east China before setting himself on fire in a classroom suicide, a government spokesman told Xinhua news agency.

    The attacker held two children in his arms as he poured gasoline over himself, the spokesman said. Teachers in Weifang City, Shandong province, pulled the children away as the man died, the spokesman said.

    On April 29, at least 28 children were injured when a man with a knife attacked a kindergarten in east China, state media said. Most of the victims were 4-year-olds and three of the children were in critical condition.

    Police arrested a 47-year-old suspect. The incident happened in Taixing city in Jiangsu province.

    On April 28, a man attacked 18 students and a teacher with a knife at a primary school in southern China's Guangdong province, Xinhua said.

    The attacks come despite the execution of Zheng Minsheng, 42, a former community doctor who stabbed eight children to death and wounded five others at an elementary school in eastern China on March 23.

    Zheng, executed by a firing squad in Nanping City late last month, told investigators he carried out the attack because he was frustrated by "failures in his romantic life and in society," according to Xinhua.

    China Daily newspaper quoted Nanjing University sociology professor Zhu Li saying Zheng's attack inspired copycats.

    "Some people may not have thought about stabbing school children, but due to the media's coverage of such a case, they got an idea," Zhu said.

    Chinese authorities have begun teaching safety awareness in school curriculums, China Daily reported.

    Officials also have tightened security in schools by hiring extra guards to escort students to and from class

    Pretty sad when you have to hire security guards to escort kids to class,It's a lot cheaper to arm teachers and train them to shoot,but ain't gonna happen in China.Even in a country where it's illegal to own a gun people seem to find a way to kill people.Maybe if they ever watched a show called lockdown they would realise that people can and will make a weapon out of almost anything

    Another example of a concept the liberal, anti's refuse to recognize. Deranged or sociopathic individuals bent on murder will beat their victims with bricks in the absence of guns or knives. It's probably just as well or they would surely organize to outlaw bricks.

    If someone had been concealed carrying the man would have been stopped in his tracks and lives saved. Period.

    its a private school in china, some of those people have mad amounts of money. I donít think extra security will bother them that much. I think the best picture to use is imagine Dubaiís wealth spread out in a slightly larger group and i think you have the Chinese elite.
