Several children are in critical condition following a knife attack in central China Friday morning. Here’s the BBC with more.

“Twenty-two children and one adult have been injured in a knife attack outside a primary school in China. The attack happened at the gate of a school in Chengping village in Henan province.”

Al Jazeera reports the suspect first attacked an elderly woman and then turned to the students. A 36-year-old local villager is thought to be the attacker, and is now in custody.

Sky News compared it to a couple of attacks in 2010, when …
“ … 28 youngsters were injured in a stabbing frenzy at a nursery school … That attack came a day after a man wielding a knife injured 15 students and a teacher at a primary school in southern China.”

Al Jazeera explains these attacks have led to an increase in security guards being deployed across the country. And WATE says a number of security measures have been enforced since then.

“After a string of knife attacks in 2010, China implemented new security techniques, including a regulation requiring people to show registration when buying large knives.”

Despite these changes, Al Jazeera reports 11 children and four adults have been killed, and several more injured following the 2010 attacks.
