A woman armed with kitchen knife on Friday attacked children at a kindergarten in China's southwestern city of Chongqing, injuring at least 14 of them before she was stopped by teachers and guards, in the latest such incident on children in the country.

The 39-year-old woman entered the school in Banan district when the children were in the playground, the BBC reported.

A crowd of police officers, parents and children can also be seen outside the kindergarten in the videos that emerged after the incident.

The woman, whose surname was given as Liu, was arrested at the scene.

Disturbing footage posted on social media showed injured children walking to ambulances from the school gate, with some being placed on stretchers.
