Knifeman stabs 20 children in attack at Chinese primary school

Twenty children were taken to hospital, the government in the Xicheng district of Beijing said on its social media account.

The suspect was apprehended at the scene and an investigation has been launched, the statement said.

The assailant who attacked 20 students at a primary school in Beijing on Tuesday is a repairman who had been sent to work at the school, according to state broadcaster China Central Television.

'Jia's company and the school management have been arranging a different position for him.

"The children were immediately rushed to hospital", the headteacher added. His contract was set to expire this month and had not been renewed.

A tweet by the Global Times said a hammer was used to carry out the assault.

According to cellphone video taken by a parent at a school briefing following the incident and seen by Sixth Tone, all of the students are second-graders.

A film of a meeting between school staff and parents circulated widely on social media, in which parents were told a "school worker" had carried out the attack.

Last October, a 39-year-old woman was arrested after hurting 14 children in a knife attack in Chongqing, a city in southwestern China, as students returned to class after morning exercises outside.

Many schools in China have increased security in recent years following violence against students and family members.

Earlier in April, nine schoolchildren were killed by a man who went on a knife spree at a school in Shaanxi province, and another two were stabbed to death outside a Shanghai kindergarten in June. In November, five people were killed when a auto plowed into a crowd of children outside a northeastern Chinese kindergarten.
