    Chinese officials say a property dispute may have been the cause of the latest in a series of attacks on schools in China, in which seven children and two adults were killed.

    Nearly a dozen other children were injured.

    The 48-year-old suspect used a cleaver to kill the owner of the kindergarten in Hanzhong city before turning on the children.

    The man later went home and killed himself.
