AMMAN — Prosecutors on Wednesday charged a teenage girl’s 40-year-old father and 16-year-old brother with rape, a judicial official said.

The 17-year-old gave birth to a baby girl last month at a hospital in Amman.

“She said that her father and her brother repeatedly raped her,” the official told AFP.

“The two suspects confessed to the crime.

DNA tests proved that the baby girl was the daughter of the victim’s brother.” The suspects face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
