7 students have been killed and 12 others injured in a knife attack outside a middle school in northern China. A video shows a male suspect in a black jacket and blue jeans being detained by police.

12 students were injured at the incident that took place on Friday evening.

An insider told the Shaanxi-based newspaper that most of the victims were female students because "male students ran more quickly". Further investigation is on. At least 25 children died and more than 100 were injured in attacks at Chinese schools between 2010 and 2012, the network said.

The Eagles also are comfortable dealing with the Ravens and Ozzie Newsome, who Joe Douglas worked for. The teams also exchanged fourth-round picks this year. "That's the thing we got to remember".

Police identified the attacker as an 28-year-old local man named Zhao who had attended the No 3 Middle School in Mizhi, Shaanxi province, in central China.

Among the dead were five girls and two boys, and the 12 wounded - nine girls and three boys - are receiving emergency treatment at the hospital, according to a government statement. Law enforcement authorities of China are going to test the psychological sanity of the killer. Knives are a natural weapon of choice in China and guns and other weapons are strictly regulated. "Revenge can't be forgiven but we need to find out how it began and prevent future cases". In June, a 22-year-old school dropout was blamed for detonating a bomb outside a kindergarten in the city of Xuzhou, in the eastern coastal province of Jiangsu, killing eight people, including himself.
