Bulgarian woman claims to be Maria's mother

A Bulgarian woman thinks she is the mother of a girl taken from a Roma camp in Greece.

35-year-old Sasha Ruseva said she gave birth to a child in Greece several years ago, but had to leave her behind because she was so poor.

five or six-year-old Maria was taken from a family, proved not to be hers, in the town of Farsala last week.
