In a macabre incident, a doctor with a history of mental illness on Tuesday broke into a primary school in east China and hacked to death eight children with a machete and left five others injured.


Zheng Minsheng, a 41-year-old doctor who had been dismissed from his job at a community clinic, walked up to a school as children were assembling for their classes and ran amok with a machete in Nanping in Fujian Province.

“The man ran into scores of children of primary classes wielding his machete left and right, felling eight children before he was overpowered,” an official said.

Police, who arrived on the scene on being alerted by school authorities, arrested the man. The statement said he was a former community clinic doctor who had been dismissed from his post and allegedly had mental problems.
