U Win-maung was a Burmese school principal who killed seven people and seriously wounded five others at a primary school in northern Burma on March 26, 1975. Out of hatred for the students' parents U called 17 children into a room on the pretext of showing them magic tricks and then attacked them with a knife. Five of the children, among them his own son, managed to escape and alert the militia, which then shot him dead.[1][2][3]
