Police quiz woman as bodies of babies found

A DUTCH woman was being investigated for murder last night after the bodies of three babies were discovered in the second infanticide case in the Netherlands in a month.

Police searched the home of the 41-year-old woman, named as Anita C, after she visited hospital complaining of abdominal pains and was found to have recently given birth. The body of the first baby was found in a garden shed at her home in Geleen, 200km (124 miles) south-east of Amsterdam, earlier this week. Two more were found buried in the garden.

Last month, a 25-year-old woman from Friesland in the north-east of the country was arrested after police found four suitcases in her attic containing remains of babies.

"No one knew Anita was pregnant," said a family friend.
