A knife-wielding assailant injured 14 children at a kindergarten in the western Chinese city of Chongqing on Friday morning, police reported. The  39-year-old woman, was taken in custody and the motive for the attack is yet to be known.

The report posted on the police force’s microblog said the attack at the Xinshiji Kindergarten in the city’s outskirts took place at 09:30 as the children were returning to classes.

All the children are receiving treatment in hospital. A doctor at the city’s Banan People’s Hospital confirmed the children were there but declined to give details.

Footage posted on social media showed injured children walking to ambulances from the school gate, with some being placed on gurneys.
