Passersby have found the body of a baby in rubbish bag between plants close to Rotterdam’s Luxor theatre.
The bag had been left in a flower pot on the Antoine Platekade in Rotterdam Zuid, near the theatre and the law courts.
No further details about the baby have yet been given by police, who have now sealed off the area and begun an investigation.
One eyewitness to the find said he noticed the bag on Wednesday because it was surrounded by flies, broadcaster NOS said.
