Five pre-school children were injured Friday when a man attacked them with an iron hammer before killing himself in a kindergarten class at an east China school.

The man who set himself on fire after pouring gasoline over himself and holding two kids in his arms died at the scene in the Shangzhuang Primary School in Weifang City, Shandong Province, said a spokesman for the city government.

The two children were pulled away by teachers, said the spokesman.

All five injured students injured have taken to hospital, where doctors said their conditions were all stable and not life-threatening, he said.

Police are investigating the attack.
