Hungarian Kidnappers Held In Italy
"Italian police have taken four Hungarian nationals into custody for kidnapping a one-year-old and then blackmailing the child’s parents, the Hungarian consul in Milan told the Independent News Agency on Tuesday. The child’s parents are also Hungarian.

The blackmailers drove the family to Italy by minibus for €100 but later demanded a fur-ther €300.

When the Hungarian family was unable to pay the sum, the blackmailers took their one-year-old child with them.

They were captured at a hotel in Rimini on Sunday."
