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.
