The Hague - Dutch police have arrested the father of a 12-year-old girl who gave birth last month, saying he is suspected of sexually abusing his daughter.

Prosecutors say there are "serious suspicions" the 52-year-old man had abused his daughter, resulting in her pregnancy.

The arrest on Tuesday added another shocking twist to a case that already had stunned the nation when news emerged last month that the girl gave birth during a school trip without having realised she was pregnant.

Prosecution spokesperson Kirsten Smit says the arrest followed analysis of the DNA of the man and the baby girl by Dutch forensic scientists that showed there is a "considerable" chance he is the father.
