As if one tragedy in a day was not enough, we’ve just learned that 22 children in China have been wounded by a man wielding a knife as they arrived to their respective classes.

The horrifying attack, which took place in the village of Chengping, happened roughly around 8 a.m., said a police officer.

The officer also informed the media that Min Yingjun, the attacker, was taken down by several security guards and taken into custody by the police. Guards have been posted at schools across China after a spate of attacks in recent years.

There are reportedly no deaths among the nine students taken to the hospital, although there were two badly wounded children that transferred to better-equipped hospitals outside the county.

The severity of their injuries has not been made clear, but we must remember how vulnerable children are at such a young age.

As of right now no motive has been given for the attack, which resembled a string of attacks on Chinese schoolchildren in 2010 that killed nearly 20 and wounded more than 50.

The most recent of these attacks took place in August, when a deranged man made his way into a middle school in the southern city of Nanchang and stabbed two students before getting away.

Most of the attackers have been mentally disturbed men who were caught up in personal disputes or unable to adjust to the rapid pace of social change in China. Clearly the Chinese medical system is weak, as they do a very poor job of diagnosing and treating psychiatric illness.
