HARBIN -- A man stabbed a woman to death and injured another on Tuesday morning in a hospital in Jiamusi city, northeast China's Heilongjiang province.

The man has been caught by police.

The attack happened in Jiamusi Maternal and Child Health Hospital and was out of personal revenge, Jiamusi municipal government said.
