Ba­bies for sale on app

The Queensland Times - - WORLD -

FOUR peo­ple have been ar­rested in In­done­sia for al­legedly sell­ing ba­bies on In­sta­gram.

The ac­count in ques­tion was al­legedly dis­guised as a fam­ily wel­fare agency and in­cluded pho­tos of preg­nant women, ba­bies with their faces blurred out and ul­tra­sound scans, the BBC re­ports.

Images of the women on the Fam­ily Wel­fare In­sti­tu­tion ac­count were ei­ther dark­ened or showed them wear­ing masks to con­ceal their iden­ti­ties. The page de­scrip­tion trans­lates to: “Help­ing to cover some­one’s dis­grace.”
