8 Children Killed In Northern Australian City

Posted:
SYDNEY (AP) - Eight children were found dead on Friday inside a home in a northern Australian city, police said.

Queensland state police said they were called to the home in the Cairns suburb of Manoora on Friday morning after receiving a report of a woman with serious injuries.

Police said when they got to the house, they found the bodies of the children inside the home. The victims range in age from 18 months to 15 years.

The woman, believed to be in her 30s, is receiving treatment for her injuries, police said. They said they had no further information, including how the children were killed.

Detective Inspector Bruno Asnicar told the Cairns Post it was "a tragic, tragic event."

Dozens of police have swarmed the home.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
