DUBLIN (AP) — Irish police have seized a young blonde girl from a Romanian Gypsy family in Dublin in a move spurred by a similar case in Greece.
The government Health Services Executive says Tuesday that it's seeking court approval Tuesday to take the girl into foster care while police investigate her origin.
Ireland's national police force says its officers took the girl out of the Gypsy home Monday after the husband and wife claimed the girl was 7 years old and their own child. A Dublin maternity hospital they identified had no record of the birth. Nobody has been arrested.
Police say neighbors of the family reported the case to police after seeing publicity of the Greek case, in which a Gypsy couple was charged with abduction of a blonde girl.
