dpa/GNA, – A mother from the western German city of Solingen accused of killing five of her six children has been charged with murder on all five counts, a court spokesman said on Monday.

The woman, aged 27 at the time of the crimes, is thought to have sedated the children with an over-the-counter drug before suffocating them.

The dead children were discovered at her flat in Solingen on September 3 last year.

After the killings, the woman threw herself in front of a train at the main railway station in nearby Dusseldorf. She was seriously injured but survived.

The children were Melina (1), Leonie (2), Sophie (3), Timo (6) and Luca (8).

The woman has since claimed that a stranger broke into her residence and killed the children.

However, the public prosecutor says there is no evidence to back that claim up.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
