JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Police say seven children have been stabbed and wounded by a knife-wielding man at an elementary school in central Indonesia.
Police spokesman Jules Abraham Abast says the children are in stable condition at a hospital. They suffered neck, chest and head wounds in the attack Tuesday morning in East Nusa Tenggara province.
The man was captured by soldiers after panicked students fled to a military post near the school.
TV footage showed dozens of angry residents gathered outside the local police station where the assailant is being held and demanding he face mob justice.
