Chinese state media sources report a knife-wielding man slashed 22 children at an elementary school in Henan province. The man attacked the children at the gate of a school in Chenpeng village and also wounded one adult, according to the Xinhua news agency. Police arrested a 36-year-old man, identified as villager Min Yingjun, and while the extent of the injuries inflicted by the attacker is still unclear, there have been no fatalities reported. The knife attacks coincided with the mass school shooting in Newtown, Conn., in which 27 people are reported dead, and the drastically different levels of violence has given fodder to both sides of the gun control debate.
