A 20-YEAR-OLD Belgian man armed with a long knife and wearing face paint killed two infants and an adult in a rampage at a creche yesterday.

Ten children and two staff were wounded, some seriously, in the attack in the town of Dendermonde near Brussels, prosecutor Christian Du Four said as anxious parents gathered to identify the victims and injured.

The man, who had his face painted white with black around his eyes, rang the doorbell at the The Country of Fables day-care centre at about 10am.
**"He went straight for the babies and attacked them,’’ **Janssens said.

Lord, have mercy
Christ, have mercy
Lord, have mercy

The shock of all involved must be incredible. Prayers and Masses for the babies and their families, the carer and family, and the cheche staff
