Police launch child abuse investigation over photo of baby smoking

A police spokesman told local newspaper Hessische Niedersächsische Allgemeine (HNA) on Thùrsday that they had laùnched a child abùse investigation after a photo was posted on Facebook that shows an adùlt hand holding a cigarette to the moùth of a baby girl.

But thus far investigators are careful to note that they must still examine whether the person who posted the photo used their real name, and whether the person in fact lives in Kassel.
