I think it's great they visited that place, to give some moral support to the emergency services and the suffering families.

I have been really saddened to learn about a horrific crime committed against innocent children and adults. It has been a graceful act on Crown Princely couple's part to visit this day care centre and provide moral support for the parties affected by this tragedy. The perpetrator is said to be mentally ill. If it is true, he is unfit to stand the trial.

Really very shocking, the babies were just a few months old! The guy who did it was arrested, and is only 20 years old. The injured people will probably all survive.

How horrible! I am so sorry for these innocent victims and their families. It is truly wonderful that Phillipe and Mathilde are there to comfort the families during this tragic event. It says a lot for the BRF that they rushed to the center to be with the families.

This really has been a shocking and tragic event and I cannot imagine how the parents of those children must be feeling and the families of the teachers to. It must have been a horrifying experience for them all and I hope the victims who have survived will recover and be comfortable.

I am really very impressed that the Crown Prince and Princess visited the scene so quickly and have given their support in such a caring way.

People here in Belgium are really horrified.... I saw on tv Mathilde and Philippe visiting the place and the pain was written on both their faces.
Having themselves a little baby girl it must touch them enormously... but here everybody are touched

Princess Mathilde , prince Philippe and their children are my favourites in the BRF.
I was horrified as well to read about those baby stabbings! What a monster, to do a thing like that. Immagine how those poor parents felt and I can also immagine that being parents themselves, the royal couple must have grieved as well.

Was the Indonesian vice-president given an award, or an order? He is wearing a medallion around his neck.
