China school attacks anger parents

Government accused of downplaying violence and hiding injured children from parents.

    Scores of children have been hurt in a recent series of attacks on schools in China.

    In the latest assault, a man armed with a knife wounded 29 kindergarten students last Thursday in the eastern city of Taixing.

    But the government has been widely accused of trying to downplay the school violence and hiding victimised children from their own parents.
