Blonde girl taken into care from Roma family in Dublin

A blonde girl thought to be seven years old has been taken into care after police raided the home of a Roma family in Dublin, the Sunday World reports.

Concerns were raised by a member of the public who said the girl, who also has blue eyes, did not look like her supposed siblings.

The girl is currently being cared for by Ireland's Health Services Executive as the family were unable to conclusively prove her identity.

It follows the case in Greece where a mystery girl, known as Maria, was discovered by police during a raid on a Roma camp.
