Roma Couple Appear in Court in Greece, Accused of Abducting Young Girl

A Roma couple are due to appear in court in Greece on charges of abducting a young blonde girl named Maria.

The child, who is about four years old, was found during a raid on a Roma camp in central Greece last week.

DNA tests showed that the girl is not related to the couple, who insist they were given her legitimately.

Maria is being cared for in Athens by a charity, called The Smile of the Child, which has received more than 8,000 calls after an appeal for information.
