A five-year-old boy and his teacher have been killed at a Beijing kindergarten and the boy's body stuffed in a washing machine in a school attack on Thursday, the Beijing News said on Friday.

The boy's body was found with no obvious wounds, but the teacher had been hit on the head in Thursday morning's attack, the newspaper said.

Seven teachers and four children had spent the night at the Beixin Kindergarten in the east of the capital, the daily said.

Earlier this month, a Chinese primary school teacher stabbed four children to death and wounded 12 pupils and four colleagues in the central province of Hunan.

Earlier last month, a man wielding a knife and homemade bombs attacked 28 children in a kindergarten in the eastern city of Suzhou, just outside Shanghai. No one was killed.

On Aug. 4, a janitor wielding a kitchen knife stabbed 15 children and at least two teachers at a kindergarten in Beijing, killing one child.
