Serbian Teenager Shoots Eight Children Dead In Belgrade Scho

Police seals off school over shooting

Eight children were killed and six others injured when a teenage boy opened fire in a school in central Belgrade on Wednesday.

Police said the boy had opened fire with his father's gun.

The statement said he was a student at the school and was born in 2009. He was arrested in the schoolyard.

Mass shootings in Serbia and in the wider Balkan region are extremely rare and none has been reported in schools in recent years.

In the last mass shooting, a Balkan war veteran killed 13 people in a central Serbian village in 2013.

Experts, however, have repeatedly warned of the number of weapons left over in the country after the wars of the 1990s.

They also note that decadeslong instability stemming from the conflicts as well as the ongoing economic hardship could trigger such outbursts.
