BUDAPEST - Members of a gang in a homeless colony in Budapest may have been behind the murders of four people whose buried bodies were unearthed earlier this week, shocking Hungarians, police said on Saturday.

"We think we have detained the core (leaders of the gang)," National Bureau of Investigation Director Zoltan Csizner told a news conference.

He said police had been tipped off early this month by a man who had escaped after being buried alive up to his chest. Media reports said the victims in the murders may have been buried alive.

Police said in a statement they had arrested three people including a man who described himself as Macedonian and may have been the head of the gang. Three other suspected members were already in custody after being arrested months ago.
