JOHANNESBURG - A knife-wielding man has attacked 10 children outside a primary school before killing himself.

Police say the attack happened this morning in the southern Chinese city of Haikou.

The Associated Press is reporting that none of the children suffered life-threatening injuries, but that two are seriously hurt.

Knife attacks against schoolchildren have become fewer in recent years after Chinese schools were hit by a rash of stabbings roughly five years ago.
