The female attacker, aged 39 years old, was sent into police custody after being overpowered by the security guards and staff of the kindergarten school. The injured were rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.
In recent years, China has faced a string of unrelated knife attacks in high, middle and kindergarten schools.
In April this year, nine students were stabbed to death in a similar attack at a middle school in Shaanxi province. (ANI)
