BEIJING (AP) — Chinese state media say two girls have died after eating poisoned yogurt placed outside their kindergarten at the direction of the head of a rival school.

The Xinhua News Agency said police believe the poisoning was motivated by competition for students between the schools.

It said the woman confessed that she injected the yogurt with rat poison and asked a man to place it with notebooks on the road to the rival kindergarten in Pingshan county in Hebei province.

Xinhua said today that the girls’ grandmother found the books and yogurt and took them home on April 24. The children suffered convulsions after eating the yogurt and died later.

Xinhua said police detained the woman and the man.

Police referred queries to Pingshan county’s information office. Calls there rang unanswered.
