Toddlers burned to death in horrific nursery attack

BREAKING: Six toddlers burn to death and 40 injured in arson attack on nursery

50 people were injured, mostly with burns, as the blaze spread through the "Innocent People" nursery in Janauba, in Minas Gerais state, in southeastern Brazil, before it was brought under control by firefighters, according to a statement from state prosecutors. The suspect died of his injuries at the hospital.

Damiao Soares dos Santos, 50, was identified as the man who doused alcohol on a daycare in Janauba and set it on fire with people inside.

Four young children and a teacher have been killed in what is believed to be an arson attack at a nursery school in Brazil.

The incident left the perpetrator "with burns all over his body", Bruno Ataide Santos, director of the local hospital stated.

About 80 children aged one to four were in the nursery as the fire spread.

Saudi Arabia Lifts Ban on Women Drivers
Banque Saudi Fransi recently reported that 670,000 foreign workers are expected to return to their native countries by 2020. It's hard to imagine that external pressure to lift the driving ban would have any impact on government decision-making.

Police have been to his home and visited friends and relatives in an effort to understand his motive.

While interrogation, Police officials found many alcohol bottles at his residence.

Janauba's mayor Carlos Isaildon Mendes said an even greater tragedy was narrowly averted. Santos reportedly told his family this week- which happened to be the third year anniversary of the death of his father- that he was going to give a "gift" to them and that he would die. "As the children were bigger a lot of them were able to escape".

Brazilian President Michel Temer expressed his condolences via Twitter.
