Human Skulls Found in Luggage, Two U.S. Tourists Charged
The unidentified young tourists told police they bought the skulls in a souvenir shop on the popular tourist island of Mykonos, and thought they were fake, Reuters reports.
The grisly discovery was made at the Athens international airport, a police official says.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the official says the skulls were found in an airport scanner check as the tourists did a stopover on their way back to the U.S.
A coroner confirmed they were human skulls, the police official says.
The American tourists were released pending trial.
