11th child in Mexico trafficking ring
Mexico City - Prosecutors in Mexico say they have seized an 11th child in
the case of an apparent child-trafficking ring in the western city of
Guadalajara that aimed to supply babies to Irish couples.
The Jalisco state prosecutor's office says the 4-month-old girl was taken
from her mother's home.
The office's statement on Wednesday also says federal prosecutors are analysing
whether to take over the case.
Prosecutors say at least 11 Irish couples are involved in the case. It says
15 Irish citizens have been questioned by authorities and none of them face
charges. All have returned to Ireland.
Police are looking for two lawyers who were handling the adoptions and have
detained nine Mexicans in the case. No one has been charged.
