Man executed for killing two school children
Adjust font size:

A man has been executed for killing two students at a school in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

Abduhalik Muzht, 39, was found guilty of fatally cutting two children with a knife in December 2006. Three other students and a teacher were injured in the attack.

According to the Higher People's Court of the region, Abduhalik was seeking revenge on the school for the death of his daughter.

In 2005, Muzht's son, a pupil of a primary school attached to the city's No. 65 Middle School, strangled his elder sister because he was embarrassed by her poor grades.

Muzht blamed the school for not intervening or taking any responsibility for his daughter's death. One year later, he attacked children crossing the street to get school.

Muzht was executed last Thursday, the court said.

He appealed to the higher court after the Intermediate People's Court of Urumqi, the region's capital, sentenced him to death last year.
