At least 37 students and two adults were injured in a knife attack at a primary school on Thursday, state media reported.
The attack took place at a school in the city of Suzhou in the Guangxi autonomous region, according to reports on Twitter from the Global Times newspaper.
Local authorities later confirmed the attack, saying it occurred around the time when the students would normally arrive for class.
“37 students suffered mild injuries and two adults suffered more severe injuries. All of them were sent to a hospital for treatment, and none of their lives are in danger,” the local government said.
