The baby was born last week in the city of Jerez de la Frontera, said
Micaela Navarro, the Andalusia region's social affairs minister.
Navarro told reporters the father of the baby is also a minor, and both the
mother and the baby were in good health. Her department declined to give
details, including the sex of the baby, but said authorities do not consider
this a case of rape and that no criminal investigation is under way.
Under Spanish law, having consensual sex with someone under age 13 is
classified as child abuse, an official with the Spanish Justice Ministry in
Madrid said. But this particular case is complicated by the fact that the
father of the baby is also a minor and it is not clear if he could be
charged, the official said.
Spanish newspapers said the mother is of Romanian origin.
