Three children were stabbed to death this morning at a primary school.
A father went on a murderous rampage with a knife after a primary school refused to let his daughter register for the new term because her homework was unfinished.
The 40 year-old man, named locally as Chen Yanfu, stabbed eight pupils, killing three, at the Dongfang Primary School in China before committing suicide by leaping to his death. A teacher was also stabbed as she tried to protect the schoolchildren.
The Chinese state broadcaster, CCTV, says that the man jumped off the school building in order to kill himself.
The identities and sexes of the dead and injured children is not known at this time, nor is whether the father’s own daughter was one of the victims.
