Police start interviews after child adoption ring smashed


Mexican authorities are investigating eleven Irish couples caught up in an illegal adoption scandal after a suspected child adoption ring in Guadalajara was smashed by local police.

State prosecutors are now interviewing the Irish couples after four Mexican women were arrested and nine babies taken into care, seven of whom were already with Irish adoptive parents.

Local state attorney Tomas Coronado told newspapers that investigators will now interview the eleven Irish couples who may have been duped by the gang into believing that their activities were legal.

Officials at the Irish embassy are in touch with the couples who traveled to Mexico as a group.
