Four Indonesians have been arrested over an alleged baby‑selling operation using Instagram.

An account which claimed to be a family welfare agency posted images of pregnant women, ultrasound scans and babies.

A telephone number was provided so potential buyers could make contact via WhatsApp.

Police there managed to intercept one transaction but were still searching for at least one baby that was sold.

The Instagram account, with more than 700 followers, features pictures of babies with their faces blurred out, along with details of their age, location and religion.

The account also features screenshots of alleged conversations between the operator and clients.
