The father of the 12-year-old girl from Groningen who gave birth last month during a school trip has been arrested. The Public Prosecutor's office has said that there are grave suspicions that the man abused his daughter and caused her to be pregnant.

Research by the Netherlands Forensics Institute NFI revealed that the 52-year-old is almost certainly the father. Police last week asked the man to supply DNA material which was compared to that of the baby.

The girl said that she was not aware that she was expecting a baby. Nobody at school had noticed the pregnancy. The girl and her baby have been placed in foster care and are sheltered from media attention.
