A boy at a secondary school in Zurich is suffering serious burns after setting himself alight.
The incident happened last week in Meilen, but details are now just emerging.

The school says counsellors are on hand for the other students.
There’s no immediate motive for the boy’s actions and the police are refusing to comment.
