independent: Boy dies after circumcision in Italy, prompting police charge against US man

 

A 66-year-old man was arrested after the two-year-old suffered fatal blood loss and his twin brother had to be taken to intensive care 

 

 

A 66-year-old American citizen has reportedly been charged with murder after a two-year-old boy died from blood loss following a botched circumcision near Rome.

Italian media said the procedure was attempted at a refugee centre in Monterotondo, on the northwestern outskirts of Rome.

It is understood that the dead boy’s twin brother was also subjected to an attempted circumcision, and it went so badly he had to be taken to a hospital intensive care unit.

Local prosecutor Francesco Menditto told reporters that the arrested 66-year-old was a Libyan-born US citizen.

Police are said to be trying to establish what – if any – medical qualifications he has.

Mr Menditto told local media: “One of the two children, transported to the hospital Sant’Andrea hospital in Rome, died of complications yet to be verified, while the other is currently hospitalised.

“A 66-year-old US citizen of Libyan descent was held responsible for practising a circumcision operation on two two-year-old Nigerian brothers.”

Italian media said the 66-year-old had been charged with murder.
