BEIJING — A man wielding a knife killed seven children and injured a dozen others outside a middle school in central China on Friday, in one of the worst attacks at a Chinese school in recent years.

The incident took place about 6 p.m., as students were being dismissed at the Mizhi County No. 3 Middle School in Shaanxi province.

The police took a suspect into custody. They said the man was a graduate of the school and that he was seeking revenge because he was bullied during his time there.
