Man slashes three children, killing 1 in mainland China

BEIJING--A man with a kitchen knife killed a 1-year-old boy and injured two other children Monday in the southern Chinese city of Zhongshan near Hong Kong, police said.

The 23-year-old man attacked the children in a rented room in Zhongshan, a police statement said. A 10-year-old girl and a 6-year-old boy were injured.

The attacker, identified by only his surname Chen, was captured by police, the statement said. It gave no motive or other details.

China has suffered a series of knife attacks, often on children. Some suspects are mentally ill but other attacks are blamed on disputes over land, business deals and other issues.
