A 45-year-old police officer was detained Monday following a three-day manhunt after CCTV images showing the abuse of a 5-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy in an elevator. Police say the officer has confessed.
The government appears to be looking for someone to blame. Premier Mihai Tudose has asked Interior Minister Carmen Dan to resign, but she has refused. She wants to fire Romania's top police officer, Bogdan Despescu, but Tudose has blocked that.
