Beijing (CNN) -- Twenty-two primary school children were wounded in a knife attack Friday in central China, authorities said.
The attack took place at the entrance to the Chenpeng Village Primary School in Henan province, according to the public information department of Guangshan county, the area where the school is located. An adult was also wounded, it said.
Several of the children are in critical condition, the state-run website Chinanews.com said, citing local authorities.
Police say they have detained a suspect, a 36-year-old man from the village, state media reported.
Initial assessments suggest the man is mentally ill, Chinanews.com said, citing Guangshan authorities.
China was hit by a spate of knife and cleaver attacks that targeted school children in 2010.

Worlds gone mad!
Will Chinese Bob Costas give a lecture?
Must have been an assault knife.
Didn’t some Chinaman kill a bunch of children at a school there not long ago?
For what it’s worth the Chinese banned knives centuries ago ~ you must have permission to own or have one.
You’re only wrong in a few details (from the article linked above):
“A number of measures were introduced at the time, including increased security at schools across the country and a regulation requiring people to register with their national ID cards when buying large knives.”

Obviously they need even more knife control laws.
Anyone seeing hussein wiping away tears for those children? Will he be writing an EO to ban Chinese knives? You can bet he’ll try that on American guns. Remember his saying, “if they bring knives, we bring guns.”
