Some 16 percent of children in the Netherlands are growing up in a single-parent household, a substantial 48 percent rate increase compared to 20 years ago. Fewer than 11 percent of children lived with one parent back in 1999, and the rate steadily grew over time, according to Statistics Netherlands (CBS).

"This situation can arise because, for example, parents have separated, a parent has died or the parents have never lived together," the statistics office said. Nearly nine-in-ten of the 538 thousand children are registered at the mother's address.

Hans J. poured caustic peracetic acid into a warehouse at IJsseland Hospital in Capelle aan den IJssel on May 4th of this year because he was angry about his colleagues bullying him, the 26-year-old man said in the court in Rotterdam on Friday. At least 16 of his colleagues got health complaints, three were seriously injured, and the hospital sustained large amounts of damage because it temporarily had to close some of its departments, the Telegraaf reports.

J. is facing charges of attempted murder or manslaughter, assault and vandalism.
