A Mexican man has been accused of giving his two children away to cancel a 25,000 peso (£1,300; $1,900) debt, then pretending they had been abducted. Javier Covarrubias confessed to the alleged crimes after detectives confronted him with evidence that his story was false, prosecutors say. His account of how his children were snatched in the street led to concerned protests in Tepito, a poor area of Mexico City. The two children are still missing.... When confronted with the evidence, police say Mr Covarrubias confessed to giving away his children, Isis and Darien, to a woman in Mexico City to cancel his debts. They say he admitted making up the kidnap story so his wife would not find out the truth.
