OSAKA (Kyodo) Eight years after a man barged into an elementary school in Ikeda, Osaka Prefecture, and stabbed eight children to death, parents whose kids attend schools in the city are still seeking ways to protect them from intruders.

Monday was the eighth anniversary of the killing rampage at Osaka Kyoiku University Ikeda Elementary School. In the intervening years, public schools in the city have posted security guards, renovated sections to provide better visibility and monitoring, and made their fences higher.
