    Attacks on the rise in schools

    The attack took place in the morning around 7:40 a.m. in the city of Lianjiang, located in Guangdong province, according to state-backed media China News Network.

    Stabbing attacks have increased in recent years in China, where the law prohibits citizens from possessing firearms. Deadly attacks specifically targeting schools have taken place across the country, prompting authorities to step up security around schools.

    In August 2022, an attack on a kindergarten left three dead and six injured in southwestern Jiangxi province. In April 2021, two children were killed while 16 others were injured in a stabbing attack in the southern town of Beiliu. In 2019, eight children lost their lives on back-to-school day, in the center of the country, stabbed in their establishment.

    In 2018, an individual killed nine college students as they left their school in northern Shaanxi province. The man, sentenced to death and executed in the months that followed, said he acted out of revenge after being the victim of harassment when he was a student at the same college.

    Videos taken by witnesses to the attacks and posted on the Chinese social network Weibo were quickly deleted by the authorities.
