N Ireland: Probe urged into reports of babies abducted from unmarried females

Human rights groups are calling for a public inquiry into church-run homes in Northern Ireland after reports that babies of unmarried women and girls were taken from them for adoption and forced to work in laundries.

Some of the victims were only reunited with their children decades later.

Amnesty International says it was a violation of human rights.

Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley reports from Belfast.
