20children injured in Beijing school attack
2019-01-08 15:16:20

 A 49-year-old man injured 20 children with a hammer Tuesday inside a primary school in China’s capital, AP reports. 

Three of the children have serious but non-life-threatening injuries, the Xicheng district government said on its social media account.

The suspect, surnamed Jia, was apprehended at the scene, the statement said. A native of northern Heilongjiang province, Jia was employed through a labor service company to perform daily maintenance work at the school. His contract was set to expire this month and had not been renewed.

As an expression of his dissatisfaction, Xicheng district said, Jia wielded a hammer that he normally used for work to injure students during a class.

All the harmed children were receiving hospital treatment.
