Hearings begin in Spain 'stolen babies' case

Former hospital manager gives evidence in scandal surrounding 300,000 stolen newborn babies sold over 40-year period.

    The former hospital manager at the centre of Spain's "stolen babies" scandal has given evidence at a court in Madrid.

    It is thought that as many as 300,000 newborn babies were stolen from their mothers and sold over a 40-year period.

    A Spanish judge will now hear evidence and decide whether there is enough for a trial.

    Al Jazeera's Rory Challands reports from Madrid.
