Seven students killed and 12 injured in a mass stabbing in China

Seven Chinese secondary school students have been killed and another 12 injured in a knife attack outside a school, state television reports.

The attacker had been bullied at school and harboured a hatred of children, the report by state broadcaster CCTV said.

The attack happened at the Number 3 Middle School in Mizhi county in the north-western province of Shaanxi, when the students were on their way home from classes.

The suspect, a 28-year-old man also from Mizhi, wanted to exact payback for the bullying he had suffered at school, CCTV reported.

According to a police statement posted on social blogging site Weibo, the attack occurred at 6:10pm local time and the suspect was taken into custody.

The Shaanxi City Express newspaper showed pictures of children on the ground covered in blood, and the suspect being lead away by police.

Violent crime is rare in China compared with many other countries, especially in major cities where security is tight, but there has been a series of knife and axe attacks in recent years and many of them have targeted children.

In February, a woman was killed and 12 people injured when a man carried out a knife attack in a mall in a busy shopping district in the capital, Beijing.

Knives are most commonly used because gun control laws are extremely strict in China

The case for gun control weakens when we read this story and the recent story from Canada where a deranged person used a vehicle as his weapon of choice.

Sadly, sick individuals will find a way to murder innocent victims no matter what controls are in place or how strict the political regime.

I can never understand the mentality of anyone with a grievance who then expresses that grievance by slaughtering innocent people - particularly children.

My thoughts are with the parents of the victims - particularly if they practised the 'one child per family' policy once introduced into China.
