8 Children Found Dead in Australia Home

An injured woman and the bodies of eight children were found inside a home in a suburb of the Australian city of Cairns, police said. Causes of death for the eight children, who ranged in age from 18 months to 15 years old, were not immediately released. The injured woman, who is the mother of seven of the victims, is cooperating with investigators and no arrests have been made. BBC News reported, citing police, that the woman was hospitalized with stab wounds, and Australian news media reported that the children had been stabbed, though NBC News had not confirmed those reports. Prime Minister Tony Abbott called news of the crime heartbreaking. "These are trying days for our country," Abbott said. "Tonight, there will be tears and prayers across our country for these children." Read »
