Chinese man stabs 18 students, teacher at primary school

A man stabbed 18 students and a teacher at a primary school in southern China on Wednesday, on the same day another man was executed for stabbing to death eight school children last month.

The middle-aged man broke into a school in Leizhou, in the southern province of Guangdong at around 3 p.m., the official Xinhua news agency said. It was not immediately clear if anyone had been killed.

The man had been seized by police after the attack, the report said, without giving further details.

Earlier on Wednesday, Zheng Minsheng, who had killed eight small children with a knife in front of a school gate in Fujian province last month, was executed, state media reported.
