Three people were arrested in Bulgaria's Black Sea coastal city of Bourgas for alleged international trafficking of pregnant women into Greece, the press office of the district directorate of the Interior Ministry said.
Officers from the anti-organised crime unit in Bourgas carried out a special operation against a group of people dealing with international trafficking of pregnant women with the purpose of selling the newborns in Greece, local news agency Focus said, quoting the ministry statement.
Authorities raided several homes used by those taken into custody and have found and confiscated a large amount of evidence, the statement said.
The detainees were put under 72-hour arrest. Investigations are continuing.
