An inquiry has begun in Spain into allegations of  infant snatching beginning during the Franco regime in the 1950s and continuing into the 1990s.  Children were alleged to have been given or sold for adoption;  at least 1500 claims have been made with some cases confirmed by DNA testing after children were grown.  See Raphael Minder, “Spain Opens Court Inquiry on Newborn Abductions” (NY Times April 12, 2012).
