Ex-convict kills 3, wounds 6 in Philippines school

MANILA, Philippines  — An ex-convict stabbed nine people at a Philippines elementary school Friday, killing three, before parents wrestled away his knife and stabbed him to death with it, police said.
The man killed a teacher, a 5th-grader and an elderly man who was among those who tried to grab the attacker's knife, police Superintendent Hado Edding said.
The man first barged into a room at the Talisayan Elementary School in Zamboanga City in the south and fatally stabbed a teacher, Edding told The Associated Press.
He then went to another room, herded 5th grade students into a restroom and stabbed them one by one until the adults were able to stop him.
