China has executed a farmer who attacked a dozen children with a knife because he wasn't satisfied with the way his life had turned out.

Qin Pengan, 43, used a vegetable knife to slash and stab the youngsters at a kindergarten in January 2017 until a teacher fought him off and called for help.

Chinese state media claim Qin launched the frenzied attack in the southern city of Pingxiang to extract revenge for his life not going as he wanted and a dispute with a neighbour.

A local court in Pingxiang sentenced Qin to death, and the sentence was carried out on Friday after it was approved by China's Supreme People's Court, state media announced on Monday.
