Release of Henan knife attack video stirs controversy

SCMP reports: “Police have released shocking security footage of the brutal attack on primary schoolchildren in Henan less than a week after the attack by a knife-wielding man left 23 pupils injured. The video has caused further outcry among China’s netizens, who blame the school for failing to protect the students. Some also question whether it’s appropriate for the government to release the video.

“The attack happened on Friday when the suspect, identified by the police as Min Yongjun, stormed into a primary school in Chenpeng village in central Henan and attacked the pupils.

“The video clip shows students fleeing after the knife-wielding man stormed in stabbing victims along the way.”

I am sorry I do not know how to download the footage. I can dub or interpret the footage into English but do not know how to incorporate the dubbing or interpretation into the footage and upload the footage in my post.
