DENDERMONDE, Belgium -- A man went on a stabbing spree at a Belgium day care center today, killing two young children and a female worker and sending 10 others to the hospital, officials said. Sobbing parents rushed to the scene.

Prosecutor Christian Du Four said the man was arrested in a nearby supermarket not long after causing widespread panic during the 10 a.m. attack in this town 20 miles northwest of Brussels.

Du Four and witnesses said the man rode his bike to the Fabeltjesland day care center, entered and immediately began slashing a knife around. The dead included two children -- ranging in age up to 3 -- and a woman working in the day care center. The center serves 18 children.

"We have three people dead and 10 in various hospitals," Du Four told a news conference.

He did not immediately identify the suspect, who was injured as police detained him and taken to a nearby hospital. The VRT television network said the man was a local resident known to police.

Du Four said police showed shaken parents digital photographs of the youngsters who had been taken to the hospital, asking them to identify their children.

The city opened up a nearby community center to provide psychological counseling to victims and witnesses of the stabbings.

Veerle Heeren, the social welfare minister for the regional Flemish government, said she would be investigating security measures at the center.

The victims families of these kids dont really get real justice when the killer goes down. They should be allowed to see what happens to them when they go inside and there cell mates find out what they did.
