Two pre-school children and an adult have been killed and 13 other people wounded in a knife attack at a creche in north-western Belgium.
A man who had painted his face black and white reportedly tricked his way into the nursery in Dendermonde, where he ran amok before escaping.
A suspect was arrested at a nearby shop and will appear in court later.
Parents have been asked to identify their children from photographs taken at local hospitals.
DENDERMONDE, Belgium — A young man with a gruesomely painted black-and-white face went on a rampage at a Belgian day care center Friday, stabbing two babies and a female worker to death and seriously wounding 12 others.
Sobbing parents rushed to the scene and to nearby hospitals. Shocked rescue workers spoke of finding crying, bleeding toddlers scattered inside the center. Medical workers at six hospitals sprang into action, performing emergency operations to save the 10 children and two adults badly wounded in the attack.
