China rocked as man kills seven children, teacher
A MAN hacked seven children and their teacher to death with a meat cleaver yesterday, in China's latest bloody schoolyard rampage. It was the eighth brutal attack on children in 10 weeks.
Yesterday, Wu Huanmin, 48, massacred five boys, two girls and their kindergarten teacher, and wounded 20 others, before returning to his Shaanxi province home and killing himself, according to Xinhua.
''There was blood everywhere,'' a local man named Zheng Xiulan said after witnessing the kindergarten scene. ''I don't know why he did it … I hadn't heard that he was mentally ill. He wasn't poor either.''
