Stolen 700-year-old mummified child returned to Peru


A 700-year-old mummified child recovered from antiquities traffickers in Bolivia two years ago has been returned to Peru.

The mummy of the pre-Inca era child, which is thought to have been about two-years-old when it died, was seized as a woman prepared to smuggle it to France.
