A Bulgarian couple has been arrested in Germany for selling a newborn baby on the black market, police said.



The 58-year-old and his wife, 51, have been arrested by German police for allegedly being part of an international baby sales operation, CNN reported Monday. The couple, both Bulgarian, were arrested last week in the city of Neunkirchen near the French border. Authorities believe the couple, who have not made an identity public, have transported at least eight pregnant women from Bulgaria to Greece. After the birth of the baby and the mother paid the bill, police said the two had given the newborn to members of the crime gang for sale.
