A father has reportedly murdered his three young children before committing suicide because his wife left him.
The incident took place in Mali Lug in the city of Bihac in north-western Bosnia and Herzegovina when Admir Sovic, 37, hanged himself after allegedly killing his seven-year-old son Ahmir, five-year-old daughter Neila, and two-year-old son Ajlan.
According to local media, his wife Leila had decided to leave him 20 days prior to the family members’ deaths and he told her that he would kill himself and the children if she went through with it.
Sovic reportedly planned it all over several days and even told a friend what he was about to do. Yet no-one acted to stop him or believed him.

His social media profile was full of pictures of his kids, and he recently spoke about finding a woman to help him take care of the children.
The crime was reported by his brother-in-law who was living with Sovic in the same house.
Neighbours said that they did not know him or his wife because they were new to the area.
The investigation is ongoing.
Netizen ‘Lilika’ commented “I wonder how the mother could have left her three young children like that.”
‘N N’ said: “Terrifying. Poor kids, living at home with monsters like that.”
‘Stana’ asked: “To the mother, what kind of person did you leave your children with? Terrifying!”
