Australian Police reports that eight children have been found dead after a mass stabbing at a house in Australia’s tropical northern city of Cairns.

Police said a 34-year-old woman had been taken to hospital with stab wounds but was stable and assisting with investigations.

Australia is already in a state of heightened alert after police stormed a Sydney cafe early on Tuesday morning to end a 16-hour hostage standoff in which three people were killed.

The victimized children are aged between 18 months and 15 years.

Police said that it was not immediately clear whether the children were from one family, what their relationship was to the injured woman, or whether the woman was involved in their deaths.

Australian PM Tony Abbot in a statement said “All parents would feel a gut-wrenching sadness at what has happened. This is an unspeakable crime. Tonight, there will be tears and prayers across our country for these children,”
