German couple try to sell baby on Ebay for 1 Euro
Berlin - German police said Sunday they have taken a seven month baby away from a couple in Bavaria who are under investigation after putting the child for sale on Internet auction site Ebay.
The baby boy was put on sale on Tuesday at a starting price of one euro ($1.58) and was withdrawn from the site around two and a half hours later, police said. There had been no offers.
The mother said it was meant as a joke( a very sick joke!), but police failed to see the funny side, putting the baby into care and launching an investigation of both parents for attempted child trafficking, a statement said.
