Sadly a baby has reportedly died after his parents performed a circumcision on him at home in Italy.
The five month old baby was rushed to hospital in Bologna, northern Italy, with a cardiac arrest on Friday night, but died shortly after arriving.
An investigation has been launched by officials in the Reggio Emilia province into the parents who are said to be of Ghanaian origin.
There are around 5,000 circumcision operations in Italy but they are not allowed to be carried out by public health organisations.
