A Roma couple have appeared in court in Greece accused of the abduction of a young girl named Maria. The child - thought to be five or six - has been undergoing tests in hospital in Athens. .
The Roma community of Farsala in Greece, where a mystery blonde girl was discovered, defend the couple who are accused of snatching her. Maria, who is four-years-old, was found after police raided the settled and DNA tests proved she is not the couple's child. One Roma woman said: "The child was just fine here. Sure, she bought it. Children are bought [for adoption] if someone does not have children that is what is done.
"This woman took this child to raise it, the mother that sold it, maybe she was poor, had problems, and she wanted to give it to a good family". Report by Lindsay Brown.
