Bolivians rule out mailing mummy to France

LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) - October 27, 2010

Police Col. Adolfo Cardenas said Tuesday a Peruvian woman tried to send the human remains from a post office in the town of Desaguadero along the Peruvian border. The destination was in the French city of Compiegne.

The mummy was discovered in a routine check of the package.

Cardenas says he doesn't know how old the mummy is, but says it was well-preserved and may have been from the Inca culture.
