Police Step Up Digging

UMET, Belgium () -- Police on Tuesday intensified digging at a house owned by Marc Dutroux, chief suspect in Belgium's child-killing and sex-abuse scandal.


Public prosecutor Michel Bourlet confirmed that Dutroux had been brought to the house late Monday night and had given vague indications where police investigators should dig. But he added no bodies had been found so far.


"No bodies have been found. Dutroux is cooperating in the investigation, but I have the impression that he is making us go around in circles," Bourlet said.
