  • ‘Sofia Echo’ reports that an 11-year-old girl gave birth in a hospital in Sliven. When her relatives tried to take her home, police stopped them: the girl will have to remain in state care until her parents’ return from Spain, while the father of the child will be charged for statutory rape. The community wanted to marry them right after the birth of the child.
