20 kids injured after hammer attack at Beijing primary school

Four of the children suffered skull fractures that required surgery, a hospital representative told reporters.

The government said the suspect had been apprehended at the scene and an investigation has been launched.

Posts circulating on social media earlier said that some children suffered knife wounds to the head.

According to the post, three of the children had serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Parents gather at an entrance gate to the Beijing No. 1 Affiliated Elementary School of Xuanwu Normal School following an attack in Beijing, China, Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019.

The incident happened at around 11:15am local in the city's Xicheng district, police said.

A report by the Press Association alleged that the 49 year male attacker, Jia, from northern Heilongjiang province, was employed through a labour service company to carry out maintenance work at the school. According to the school's website, it has 2,537 students and 199 teaching staff.

Though the school was discussing another job posting for Jia, he used a hammer and attacked students to "vent his resentment", they said.

It comes just months after a 39-year-old woman was reportedly held on suspicion of stabbing 14 school children in October last year in Chongqing.

Five children were killed in November when a vehicle ploughed into a crowd outside a school in Huludao in Liaoning province.

The attack comes a day after a Chinese man was put to death for injuring 12 children in a knife attack at a nursery in China.

Many schools in China have increased security in recent years following violence against students and family members.

In November, a driver rammed his auto into a group of children crossing a street in front of an elementary school in northeastern Liaoning province, killing five people and injuring at least 19.
