The Brazil School Killing

It is too early to tell decisively whether the killer went after girls, in particular. But ten out of the reported eleven victims who have died are girls.

Given this, it's odd that the only report I found which stressed the gender imbalance was the UK Guardian. All the other sources talk about "children" being killed, while mentioning that ten girls and one boy are currently counted among the dead.
