US turns over seized prehistoric relics to China

US Customs officials turned over to China on Monday fossils dating from as early as 100 million years ago that included bones of a saber-toothed cat, a partial skull of a dinosaur called a Psittacosaurus lujiatunesis and eggs of several other dinosaurs.


The undocumented relics had been shipped in two loads and were confiscated by customs agents in Chicago, Illinois, and Richmond, Virginia, the Homeland Security Department said. (AP)
