A knife-wielding man broke into a school in southern China on Wednesday and killing two children and wounding 16 others, according to local authorities.

A man with the last name of Zeng, 24, began the attack around 2 p.m. at the private Jianle kindergarten in Xinfeng, a town of 50,000 in Beiliu City in the southern province of Guangxi. Both teachers and students appeared to have been targeted during nap time.

There were at least 18 victims in the attack, with all but two being students, according to local reports.

Videos posted to Chinese social media sites showed graphic footage of bloodied children crying, with some lying unresponsive on the floor of a covered playground. Videos also showed a man, presumably Zeng, being forcibly detained by police.

Authorities didn't confirm a motive for the attack, but Hong Kong news outlets, including Oriental Daily and Apple Daily, reported that the suspect was going through a divorce and his wife worked at the school.

On Wednesday evening, two of the students had died. Two other victims were undergoing operations while the remaining victims were receiving other treatments.
