Police in southern China are searching for a man who allegedly killed three people and injured six others at a kindergarten in the country’s southern province of Jiangxi on Wednesday.
In a police statement, the 48-year-old suspect was identified by his surname Liu. The brief did not give further details of the attack in the province’s Info county on Wednesday morning.
China has upgraded security at schools after deadly attacks in recent years, mostly by people with grudges against society or those with undiagnosed mental illnesses.
China does not allow private gun ownership, so most such attacks are carried out with knives, homemade explosives or petrol bombs. Over the past decade, nearly 100 children and adults have been killed and hundreds injured in seemingly uncoordinated, “lone wolf” attacks with an unclear motive and violent male attackers either killed or killed. Or they were tried and executed.
Acts of violence against China’s youth resonate particularly strongly because of the country’s chronically low birthrate, due in part to decades of population control policies.
