Security guard sets nursery on fire, kills 5 toddlers

TWITTER

A firefighter in the city of Janauba said on Thursday that the guard was among those injured and was in serious condition.

The security guard allegedly responsible for the attack is believed to have died in hospital after the attack this morning.

Fifteen victims with life threatening injuries have been sent to the capital Belo Horizonte where hospital facilities are more able to cope than than those in the small city where the tragedy occurred.

At least four children and a teacher were killed at a day care center in Brazil after a security guard doused them with flammable liquid and then set a fire.

The mayor of Janauba - population 70,000 - declared seven days of mourning.

About 80 children were in the nursery school when the attack occurred, prompting anxious parents to converge on the site which they found reduced to ashes.

More Americans have died from gunshots in the past 50 years than have been killed in every US war, NBC News reported.

Investigators are still trying to determine a motive for the brutal attack. "I woke him up early to bring him here and when I saw him again he was dead in the hospital", Kelly said between sobs. "I want to express my solidarity with families", wrote Brazilian president Michel Temer on Twitter.

Mr Temer said that, as the father of a school-age child, he understood "this must be an extremely painful loss" for the parents.
