Man attacks 24 children in Chinese kindergarten

A long unemployed man in his 40s attacked a group of four-year-olds in a kindergarten in eastern China, critically injuring two of them and wounding 24 others and three adults before police could stop the attack, reportedly thanks to a milkman hitting the attacker over the head with a mop handle.

The attack in Taixing, Jiangsu province, comes just a day after a 33-year-old man with a history of severe mental problems attacked a school in Guangdong province, injuring a teacher and 16 young children. Five of the chidren in Guangdong are in critical condition.
