Wednesday 25 July 2012
Four barrels containing 248 human foetuses have been found by villagers in a forest in the southern Urals.
According to police, the foetuses were preserved in formaldehyde and had tags on them containing surnames and numbers.
Villagers made the discovery in woodland a few miles from a road linking the nearby city of Yekaterinburg with another big city, Nizhny Tagil.
Police believe one of the four local hospitals in the Sverdlovsk region is responsible for dumping the barrels.
