Men armed with knives burst into a college dormitory yesterday, wounding nine students – one of them seriously.

The pre-dawn incident is the latest in a series of mass knife attacks in the country. It appeared to be a revenge attack for an earlier confrontation between students and villagers.

The men rushed into a dormitory at the Hainan Institute of Science and Technology in Hainan province and hacked away at anyone they came across. One student had his hand cut off, while eight others suffered lesser injuries.
