Buried babies horror in Australia
(03-18 15:35)

Police in Australia began digging up a rural property today searching for what reports said were “multiple babies'' in secret graves.
Officers swooped on a house near Gin Gin, 370 kilometers northwest of Brisbane, after a tip-off that children were born in secret and their bodies hidden on the property by the same family in the 1990s and early 2000s.
Police confirmed the investigations into information they received.
The Brisbane Courier-Mail newspaper referred to “multiple babies in secret graves.’’
Given the potential remains are more than a decade old and tiny, police said the excavation process was “meticulous.’’
Skeletal remains have not been found so far.—AFP
