German police find dead children
The children were aged between three and nine
A mother has been placed in psychiatric care in the north German state of Schleswig-Holstein on suspicion of killing her five young children.
Police found the bodies of five children aged between three and nine, who had suffered "violent" deaths, at a house in the village of Darry.
"As far as currently known, the motive is to be sought in the mother's mental illness," they said in a statement.
The 31-year-old has been detained and sent to a psychiatric facility.
Last year, a German woman was jailed for killing eight of her own babies.
