NIKOLAEVO, Bulgaria (AP) — Los exámenes de ADN han confirmado que una pareja búlgara de gitanos es la progenitora de una niña en Grecia conocida como María, informaron el viernes las autoridades.

Los perfiles genéticos de Sasha Ruseva y su esposo, Atanas, son similares a los de la niña, dijo Svetlozar Lazarov, funcionario del Ministerio del Interior.

Ruseva ha dicho que dio a luz a una niña hace cuatro años en Grecia mientras trabajaba como recolectora de aceitunas, y la regaló porque era demasiado pobre como para cuidarla.
