The Persian Princess Hoax

Seven years ago, a ‘mummy’ was discovered in Pakistan which was considered to be dating back to the 6th century BC. Later it was confirmed that it was a fake and may even be the body of a murder victim. That was in 2001.

Today, its 2008 and the mummy still lies at the Eidhi Center Morgue in Karachi, amid a bureaucratic snuffle about who will be the proper authority to allow its burial.

Guess we have one more ‘attraction’ for adventure seekers here. Go see it before the government actually does something about it.
