Belgian MPs due to vote on child euthanasia

Belgium's MPs are expected to vote on whether to extend a euthanasia law to terminally-ill children.

The bill seeks to allow children to ask for euthanasia if their illness is terminal, they are in great pain and there is no available treatment.

The lower house is likely to back the bill, correspondents say.
