5 killed in Japan family suicide

A family of five -- including three young children -- found dead in a van in central Japan are believed to have been a suicide, a police official said yesterday.

The five -- a man and a woman in their 30s and three boys aged five, seven and 10 -- are believed to have died of carbon monoxide poisoning after burning charcoal pieces inside the vehicle -- a not uncommon method of taking one's own life in Japan.
