From the same month as the Batman shooting (and that Bors cartoon):
“Violent crimes on rise in Asia as teen kills 8, wounds 5 in knife attack”
Today, the same day as our own tragic shooting:
“Knife-wielding man injures 22 children in China”
“There have been a series of attacks on schools and schoolchildren around China in recent years, some by people who have lost their jobs or felt left out of the country’s economic boom.”
