A knife-wielding man killed a nurse and injured four others at a hospital in south China’s Guangdong Province.

The knife attack occurred at a urology hospital in Huizhou City on Saturday.

The 26-year-old suspect, surnamed Lai, has been controlled by the police.

The nurse was killed while a security guard and three other medical workers were injured. The injured have been hospitalised and are in stable condition.

The suspect’s motive was not known and police were investigating the case, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

Attacks on medical personnel by patients and their relatives have become common in China.

The government has ordered stepping up of security in all hospitals in the country.
