Belgian nursery attacker "suicidal"
A 20-year-old accused of knifing to death
two toddlers and a teacher in a nursery in Belgium is displaying suicidal
tendencies in his prison cell, the Belga news agency reported Sunday, quoting
judicial sources, dpa reported.
The suspect, who is held in the hospital wing of a prison in Bruges, looked apathetic during a hearing Sunday before magistrates and is being force-fed as he refuses to eat or drink.
Psychiatrists were due to interview him on Monday in a bid to discern his motives.
So far, the suspect has remained silent on the reasons that led him to the carnage in the kindergarten in Dendermonde.
He faces charges of triple murder and multiple counts of attempted murder.
