The EFE news agency, which was able to speak to another pupil at the school, said the aggressor “is not a problematic person, but he is always alone, he has ‘a thing’, I think he has lost his mind”.

The minor could have a mental disorder, according to his classmates, who have claimed in the media he suffers from Asperger’s syndrome.

They also said the child may have been bullied because “some of his classmates laughed at him”, “others threw water on him in the playground“.

All pupils have been evacuated from the school while police continue to investigate.
