Belgium's Sorry claim to fame

The first week of Marc Dutroux's complex trial ended on Friday. This trial is about a man charged with child abduction, rape and murder, a man who is deep in the centre of an "extremely wide ring of paedophiles", although this is proving hard to be brought to light, and is due to go until June.

The names of two of Dutroux's victims that come straight to mind are Julie and Melissa followed closely by An and Eefje. All four girls were raped, Julie and Melissa were starved to death and An and Eefje were drugged and buried alive.
