The attack which also injured 50 others has sent shockwaves throughout the country and indeed the world as all of the children killed in the attack were aged four.

Four toddlers and a teacher are reportedly dead in Janauba, Brazil after the school guard sprayed them with alcohol before setting them alight. The guard, who had helped with security at the center since 2008, died hours later in a local hospital.

Janauba's mayor decreed seven days of mourning to mourn the lost lives.


The local Frangipani Regional Hospital has reported that 40 people including children and adults are being treated for a range of burns, breathing difficulties and injuries. But this motive is yet to be confirmed by investigators. The former security guard was seen carrying a pink backpack where he allegedly carried flammable liquid, possibly alcohol or gasoline, which he then used to set the victims and himself on fire. Some of the patients are being airlifted to a specialised burns unit in the state capital, Belo Horizonte.

The Jana├║ba Regional Hospital is treating some of the victims of the fire.

Brazilian President Michel Temer expressed his condolences via Twitter.


The attack took place in the state of Minas Gerais.

"I am deeply saddened by this tragedy involving children in Janauba, and I want to express my solidarity with the families", Temer wrote.
