A staff member at a daycare center for migrant workers attacked children in her charge with a knife on Monday, wounding eight of them.

The attack took place at noon at the Xiaofuxing daycare center in Shanghai's suburban Minhang district, which is home to a large number of migrant workers.

Five boys and three girls between the ages of 3 and 4 were hurt in the outbreak of violence, suffering wounds to their hands, faces and necks.

Two of the children had serious injuries to their head and neck muscles. The hospital declined to give more information.

The police have detained the person who is suspected of committing the attack, a woman who is believed to have been undergoing a psychotic episode. She is now under investigation, officials said without giving further details.

Gao Tiantian, a 4-year-old girl who suffered light injuries to her face said: "the teacher slashed my face with a pointed tool”. She said the teacher's uncle had also pinched her, an account that the police could not verify.

The attack was the latest incident in a spate of violence directed against children in schools and nurseries.
