Beijing -

A man wielding a kitchen knife killed a one-year-old boy and injured two other children on Monday morning in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong, the Chinese news agency Xinhua reported.

A posting on Xinhua's Weibo social media account said the 23-year-old migrant worker attacked the children in a rented room in Zhongshan city. The injured were a 10-year-old girl and a six-year-old boy.

The account did not provide more details about the attack.

China has suffered a series of knife attacks on children, mostly in schools.

In May, a man with a knife wounded eight first- and second-graders at a school in central China.

In April, eight knife-wielding men slashed at students on their way home, killing one student and injuring two in the northwestern city of Ankang. - Sapa-AP
