A four-year-old girl has been found dead at an address on an east London housing estate.
The child's body was discovered at a property on Elderfield Road, Clapton, at about 1530 GMT on Thursday after reports of a knife incident.
A woman, 36, believed to be the girl's mother, has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act after being arrested on suspicion of the girl's murder
The Daily Mail's version is more detailed:
A mother has been arrested after a four year old girl was found stabbed to death with her heart and other organs cut out and strewn around her flat.
The 35-year-old woman was allegedly sitting in a her kitchen chanting verses of the Koran as her daughter's disembowelled corpse lay next to her.
The little girl's heart and other organs were found in different rooms around the flat in Clapton, east London.
Police suspect she she carried out the killing as a religious offering as she listened to the Muslim holy book on an MP3 player at full volume.
The mother, who is understood to have two teenage children of 14 and 16, has since been sectioned under the Mental Health Act and is in a secure unit.
Would a man who did this have merely been sectioned under the Mental Health Act?
