Don't Try This At Home

Bari, Italy - The death in Italy of a two-year old boy following a botched circumcision lead Wednesday to the arrest of a Nigerian man on manslaughter and illegal medical practice charges.

The boy, identified in news reports only with the name Johnson, died Tuesday of a haemorrhage several hours after the circumcision took place, authorities in the southern port city of Bari said.

Police arrested 28-year-old Eraboremi Eghanghe who they said has admitted to carrying out the circumcision with a 'barber's razor- blade and some palm oil.' However, he has denied being responsible for the boy's death.

Boy's name was Johnson.

That is all.
