It is reported that the body of a child has been found by investigators in the area of Liège in Belgium, where two girls disappeared nearly three weeks ago. Belgian media say the corpse is that of 7-year-old Stacy Lemmens, who disappeared along with Nathalie Mahy, 10, on the night of June 9.

That has not been confirmed by police. The only suspect, Abdellah Ait Oud, is to appear before a court to hear whether his detention period will be extended. He had previously been convicted of abusing minors.The case has gripped the country and revived fears of a repeat of the crimes committed by the paedophile Marc Dutroux.
