Police were last night trying to stop Facebook vigilantes causing civil unrest after a one-month-old baby boy was raped and battered so badly that his heart stopped.
Messages on the social networking site revealed plans for a vigil near the home of the infant, who is thought to have suffered one of Britain’s worst cases of child abuse.
The baby’s horrific injuries were said to have included a broken arm, a broken collarbone, punctured lungs and severe bruising.
It was said all of his ribs were fractured.
There was reportedly also a sexual injury and internal wounds, suggesting rape.
A man and a woman, from Gravesend, Kent, were arrested in connection with the incident. They have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
