None of the children were seriously injured and it appears they were grazed by a single bullet and its shrapnel, officials told the Houston Chronicle. The boy who brought the gun was wounded in the foot, another sixyear-old boy was wounded in the leg and a fiveyear-old girl was wounded in the foot, school spokesman Jason Spencer told the paper. ntnews.com.aul l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l WORLD Killing on webcam Wewere praying for the possibility that the victimwas a different person with the samename Sgt Skubic TORONTO: A Chinese student in Canada was last seen alive on webcam by her boyfriend who witnessed her struggling with a man before the camera was abruptly shut off. Canadian police said they still dont know what caused the death of 23-year-old York University student Liu Qian, who was chatting to her boyfriend via webcam when she was attacked. Her father Liu Jianhui said his daughters boyfriend Meng Xianchao witnessed the attack on the webcam. Liu Jianhui said he was headed to Toronto yesterday. She was our only child, he said. Police said the body of Liu was found on Friday in her apartment in Toronto a few hours after the attack. She was naked from the waist down and there were no obvious signs of sexual assault or trauma that would have led to her death, police said. An autopsy failed to show the cause of death and it could be weeks before the results of toxicology tests are known, police Sergeant Frank Skubic said. The death has yet to be classified officially as a homicide, though police are investigating it as such. Liu was chatting with her boyfriend, Meng, by webcam at about 1am on Friday when an unknown man knocked on the door, police said. Meng reported seeing a struggle break out between the two before Lius webcam was shut off. After hearing the news about Liu Qian, our family and friends were all very worried, Liu Jianhui said. But we were praying for the possibility that the victim was a different person with the same name . . . soon we found that we could no longer reach my daughter. Then the Canadian police made it quite clear that it was indeed my daughter. Liu Qians laptop computer, webcam and mobile phone are missing, Sgt Skubic said. He added that it was not clear if Liu knew her at tacker. He said a former roommate had been interviewed, but declined to call the man a suspect. Murdered Aussie girls father free HICKORY, North Carolina: The father of murdered Australian girl Zahra Baker is out of jail, but is wearing an electronic ankle tag and being watched by immigration authorities, US news reports reveal. Adam Baker is free on bail, but has been indicted by a grand jury on charges of identity theft and obtaining property by false pretence, the Hickory Daily Record newspaper reported. Bakers American wife has been charged with the murder and dismemberment of Zahra and is in custody. The three-week Egyptian popular uprising resulted in a huge number of eye injures. Egypt toll soars CAIRO: At least 846 Egyptians died in the nearly three-week popular uprising that toppled long-serving president Hosni Mubarak, a government fact-finding mission has found. The panel of judges described police forces shooting protesters in the head and chest with live ammunition. They presented a death toll more than twice that of previous official estimates. The fatal shots were due to firing bullets at the head and the chest, the report read. It also said a huge number of eye injures filled hospitals and hundreds lost their sight. Earlier official estimates put the toll from the days of demonstrations, in which protesters battled riot police, at 365.
