Man Sets Fire To Himself In Latest Attack On Chinese School Children

A Chinese state media report says a man has killed himself after attacking five children at a kindergarten in eastern China, the latest in a string of assaults on children at schools in the country.

The official Xinhua News Agency said the unidentified man poured gasoline over his body and set himself on fire while holding two children. It said teachers pulled the children away. Xinhua said none of the children's injuries were life-threatening in the attack in Jinan city in Shandong province.

Friday's attack comes after 29 children were hurt when a man attacked them with a knife in Jiangsu province. Five of the children are in serious condition.

    Bud, sorry but you really don't understand that Satan is the prince and ruler of this world we live in. God almighty allows Satan roam, corrupt, deceive and devour in this world for the time being. Satan knows his time is short and is doing everything he can day & night to cause havoc within mankind or creations of God. Buddhists are deceived by the great deceiver Satan himself and looks like he's even deceived you as well because you know not the truth. Bud, please remember that the Word of God is the Living Word of God and it is the Only way with Jesus that men will be saved. Not by living like Monks or dancing around a fire through voodoo worship or any other way! There's only ONE WAY that men can be saved and live in heaven with the ONLY TRUE LIVING GOD and that's by accepting & following Jesus Christ the son of God. All other religions are trails to eternal damnation and the lake of fire which was prepared for the devil, his angles or demons and everyone who rejects Jesus Christ.

    I hate to say this, but it would not surprise me if this happens in America within a year. This nation is going downhill faster than ever.

    Oh whatever Anonymous, your entire comment is beyond ridiculous. It's people like you that got America into the mess it's in today. "Oh, we should apologize for existing! If America hadn't been America then maybe those poor Chinese loons wouldn't have stabbed the kids." What a joke. Do you REALLY think American culture is one of child-stabbing and light-my-fire suicides? Give the Chinese more credit. I'm sure they don't devote their lives to mimicking Americans, and this action in no way copies anything American I've ever seen. Murder/suicide isn't an American invention. And US Citizen, the Chinese don't fall under Satan's jurisdiction, they're Buddhists! What I wanna know is why the kids don't run away! It's like they're in line to get stabbed, patiently waiting their turns. I was worried about the education system in America, but now I see we're doing okay cause Chinese kids don't even know to RUN AWAY when somebody has a knife!

    There must be some underlying pressure happening in China to force these attacks. Honor among the Chinese people is paramount. They don't usually do things like this. It's more an American thing. Maybe our culture has had a negative effect?

    He had to be possessed by demons to do something like this. Similar to the guy who shot and killed the Amish children in PA recently. Satan is at work more than ever because he knows his time is short.
