This was the outcome despite the doctors' attempts that lasted several hours to save it, state broadcaster RTS has said.

The baby had injuries to internal organs and severe head trauma and underwent urgent surgery.

The father, 25-year-old K.K. from the Belgrade municipality of Zemun, was arrested yesterday on charges of family violence and is now being held for 48 hours.

The Belgrade-based daily Blic is reporting that the man, who battered the child, said he "did not know what he was doing" because he was taking antidepressants and alcohol.
