Man kills four children in axe attack at Brazilian daycare

The attack took place in Brazil’s southern state of Santa Catarina and left multiple children dead and injured.

A man armed with a small axe has attacked a daycare in southern Brazil, killing four young children in a tragedy that Brazil’s President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva called a “monstrosity”.

The attack occurred on Wednesday when a 25-year-old man scaled the wall of a private daycare in Blumenau, a city in the state of Santa Catarina. Once inside, he killed four children estimated to be between the ages of four and seven and injured several others, according to the local Hospital Santo Antonio.
