Man gets death for murdering 8 children

April 8, 2010


— A Chinese court has sentenced a former medical worker to death for the stabbing murders of eight schoolchildren a little more than two weeks ago.

The Intermediate People’s Court in Nanping city in southern Fujian province gave the death sentence to Zheng Minsheng for his attacks on the schoolchildren as they waited to enter their school on March 23. The randomness of the attack and the age of the children shocked China.

The official Xinhua News Agency said Zheng admitted “intentionally killing” the children.
