According to CBS News,
A man wielding a knife attacked students Friday at a school in central China, leaving 22 children and one adult injured, according to state-run media reports.
The attack occurred at the gate of an elementary school in the village of Chengping, in Henan Province. Police arrested the attacker, who they identified as local resident Min Yingjun, 36.
Children as young as six were among those hospitalized after the attack, suffering injuries including slashes to the ears and head.
An official at Guangshan Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital, the local facility, told CBS News at least two students had been transferred to the larger city of Wuhan, not far from Chengping, for treatment. The editor of the local newspaper which first reported the story said none of the children had injuries severe enough to threaten their lives.
The attack marks the latest in a series of violent assaults at elementary schools in China. In 2010, a total of 18 children were killed in four separate attacks. On March 23 of that year, Zheng Minsheng attacked children at an elementary school in Fujian Province, killing eight.
One month later, just a few hours after Zheng Minsheng was executed for his crime, another man, Chen Kanbing wounded 16 students and a teacher in a knife attack at another primary school in Fujian. The following month, on May 12, a man named Wu Huangming killed seven children and two adults with a meat cleaver at a kindergarten in Shaanxi Province. That attack was followed by an August 4 assault by Fang Jiantang, who killed three children and one teacher with a knife at a kindergarten in Shandong Province.
In 2011, a young girl and three adults were killed with an axe at an elementary school in Henan Province by a 30-year-old man named Wang Hongbin, and eight children were hurt in Shanghai after an employee at a child care center attacked them with a box cutter.
Some Chinese bloggers have blamed the lack of freedom of expression for the attacks, suggesting people frustrated by their own circumstances but lacking the means to seek justice or voice their concerns with the all-powerful communist government, lash out instead at the least powerful members of society.
China's lack of mental health care facilities may also be partly to blame for the attacks. There are almost no mental health care facilities in rural communities, which have experienced dramatic changes over the last several years as China's economy has grown.

Jodi Rock, a 19-year-old Oklahoma woman has been jailed after she allegedly admitted to burning her baby's genitals with hair-straightening iron.
According to the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to Tahlequah City Hospital late last month after a 15-month-old baby arrived to the ER with various bone fractures and burns to his genitals.
Investigators say the baby suffered three serious burns to his groin area. The child also suffered bone fractures in both shoulders, his forearm and wrist.
The child's mother, identified as Jodi Rock, gave deputies several different stories as to how the child was injured.
When detectives questioned Rock a second time, she reportedly admitted to burning her baby with a hair-straightening iron by closing the iron around the child's genitals.
Rock also told investigators that she or her boyfriend "may" have injured the baby's arms by playing too rough with him.
Rock was booked into the Cherokee County Detention Center and charged with felony injury to a child. Her bond has been set at $200,000.
Jonathon Rodriguez, a 28-year-old Texas man was jailed Saturday after he allegedly ran his girlfriend down with an automobile after she broke up with him.
According to police, Rodriguez became angry when his girlfriend announced that she was breaking off her relationship with him.
Investigators say Rodriguez retaliated by cursing and yelling at the woman. When that didn't change her mind, he allegedly hopped into a car, punched the gas and ran her over as she walked along a sidewalk.
Rodriguez showed his undying love for the woman by fleeing the scene as she lay injured. The woman was taken to a local hospital where she was treated for a broken leg and other minor injuries.
Although the assault took place on April 7, Rodriguez remained a fugitive until his arrest Saturday.
He was booked into jail and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bail has been set at $80,000.
