The Hague, Aug 6 (DPA) A 25-year-old Dutch woman has been arrested on suspicion of killing three of her babies, police said Friday.
The woman was detained in the home of her parents in Nij Beets Thursday evening after police found the corpses hidden in three suitcases.

It was unclear how the babies, who were born after 2002, had died.

The woman told police she had given up the children for adoption soon after their birth, but was unable to provide evidence to back up her claim.

A search of the attic of her home Friday turned up another suspicious suitcase, the contents of which were not disclosed.

The parents of the woman told police they had been unaware of their daughter’s pregnancies.
