Chinese man kills 8 children in attack on first day of school: police

A man who recently served time for attempted murder allegedly killed eight children and injured two others who were attending their first day of school in China, police said.

The 40-year-old man, only identified by the surname Yu, was taken into custody late Monday after he allegedly attacked the kids at an elementary school in Chaoyangpo village of Enshi city in Hubei province.

It was not immediately clear how the children were attacked.

The man was released from Hubei prison last June after serving a sentence for attempted murder, according to local media. A possible motive was not immediately clear either.
