Mother loses custody of her girls who are returned to Italy

The father of four sisters forcibly removed from their mother in Australia this week has broken his silence, calling for privacy to allow the girls to adjust to being back in Italy.

The girls were flown to Italy after Brisbane's family court ordered they return to their father -- after their mother brought them to Australia for a holiday in 2010 and never went back.

The father says media coverage needs to stop so the situation can become more tranquil.

Two Murrays speak with Sandy Rea, Child psychologist about the situation the young girls find themselves in.
