China Chongqing, 14 kindergarten children stabbed and injured by a woman
At least 14 children were stabbed and wounded this morning at a nursery school in Chongqing, Banan District. The children were doing physical exercises in the Yudong New Century kindergarten courtyard when a woman attacked them with a kitchen knife.
The 39-year-old woman, named Liu, was taken away by the police. The children were transported to the hospital to treat their wounds.

The reason for the attack is unknown, but several social media say the woman was furious at the government.
In all these years there have been frequent attacks against children in schools. The perpetrators have often expressed anger towards teachers, towards schools that refuse their children, because the government had forced a mother to submit to a forced abortion, or mental insanity.
Last June, a 29-year-old man injured two children outside a primary school in Shanghai; last April in Shaanxi, nine schoolchildren were stabbed to death by Zhao Zewei, a man who was later sentenced to death.
My view: It's shocking and scary, I feel for the defenseless children attacked by the mentally ill woman. The school gate should have been locked to prevent this horrible act from happening.?
