Woman arrested in France suspected of daughter`s death

A woman has been arrested in France as part of a murder investigation into the death of a toddler suspected to be her daughter, prosecutors said.



Lille (France): A woman has been arrested in France as part of a murder investigation into the death of a toddler suspected to be her daughter, prosecutors said.

The unidentified woman was apprehended in the eastern Paris suburb of Saint-Mande yesterday after a public appeal for her whereabouts following the November 20 discovery of the body of the girl on a beach in northern France.

The 36-year-old suspect is refusing to talk to police, but DNA tests are under way to identify her, regional assistant prosecutor Nathalie Bagny told a news agency.

Surveillance video images had shown the woman and the child taking a train from Paris to the coastal town of Berck-sur-Mer on November 19, then the woman returning alone the next day, some hours after the girl`s body was discovered.

Dozens of people were to hold a "white" march today in homage of the dead girl, believed to be around one year old and whose identity has not been made public, according to local officials.
