Beijing - A Chinese court on Friday sentenced to death a man who injured 16 children and a teacher in an April knife attack at a primary school in the south of the country, Xinhua news agency said.

An intermediate court in the city of Zhanjiang in Guangdong province sentenced Chen Kangbing to death for the attack at the Hongfu Primary School, the report said.

"Chen hacked at the children and teacher in a very cruel manner, causing great harm," Xinhua quoted the court as saying in its verdict.

The assault was one of a number that took place in China in a period of less than two months, leaving 17 people - including 15 children - dead and more than 80 injured.

Two of the attackers committed suicide, while two others have already been sentenced to death and executed.
