BEIJING
— A man stabbed to death eight people including his wife, elderly mother and young daughter in a village in southeastern China, the latest in a spate of rampage attacks that have shocked the nation.

The suspect, identified as Zhou Yezhong, waged his killing spree in the village of Chengyuan in Jiangxi province on Saturday, the Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday, quoting police and residents.

China has been hit by a series of assaults, many of them against children, in a country where violent criminal attacks remain relatively rare.

Another two people were killed and three wounded in a stabbing spree in the city of Hong Kong on Saturday, authorities there said.

Citing witness accounts, Xinhua said Zhou first killed his 10-year-old daughter and then his mother, aged in her eighties, even though she fell to her knees begging for mercy.

The man, aged 36, rushed to another house where he killed his wife and two neighbours before stabbing two other villagers who were running away to seek help, and a migrant worker, Xinhua said.

He was caught by police almost two hours after his rampage began, and an investigation is under way. The motive of the killings was still unknown, said Zhou Weihui, head of the county public security bureau…….. (more details from AFP)
