An 18-year-old ethnic Burmese man has been arrested in connection with the stabbing deaths of three children in the southeastern US state of North Carolina, police said on Wednesday.
Responding to a report of a person walking down the street with a knife, police disarmed Eh Lar Doh Htoo late on Tuesday at a house in New Bern, North Carolina, where they found the bodies of two of the victims. The third died as he was being transported to a hospital.
The dead were brothers aged one, five and 12, and apparently knew their assailant, police said. They also were of Burmese origin.
Two people were also wounded in the attack, but were not in serious condition.
The suspect was held under US$1 million bond at the county jail.
