    Almost 1,800 human fetuses have been found at a Buddhist temple in Thailand's capital, according to reports.

    A woman who was detained earlier this week in conenction with discovery confessed Friday to performing illegal abortions, Thai media said.

    Police found 348 fetuses on Tuesday after nearby residents complained of a foul smell. Temple staff traced the smell to a compartment in the morgue, where they found plastic bags containing dead fetuses.

    At least 1,500 more fetuses were found Thursday night, police said.

    She began performing abortions after a doctor she worked with moved to another clinic. She charged patients 5,000 baht ($167) if they were up to three months pregnant and 30,000 baht ($1,000) if they were up to five months pregnant.
