BANGKOK - Authorities have found another 21 surrogate babies at the same condominium where they had earlier discovered nine surrogate babies with the same Japanese father.

The babies found at The Niche ID condo include 12 boys and nine girls aged between four months and about 10 months old, Thai PBS reported on Friday.

They were found in a unit at the condo near where the earlier group of babies were discovered.

The report quoted authorities as saying all the surrogate babies in the latest find have foreign parents - Western and Japanese nationals - as shown by the family names of the babies in the household registration document which has Mr Samran, a 41-year-old man, as the owner.
