AMSTERDAM - Hengelo was the site of another domestic tragedy on Monday. A 36-year-old woman tried to kill herself while her seven-year-old son and five-year-old daughter were in the room. They were also wounded.

The mother was seriously injured and lost a lot of blood. Police have not yet been able to question her.

It is still unclear whether the woman, a resident of the village of Mariaparochie, had also tried to kill her children or that they were injured in some other way.

"This is one of the things that the investigation is focussing on," said Jan Camphuis.

Nor do the police have any idea about the motive behind the act of desperation.
They are withholding from any further comment out of respect for the victims.
