MUNICH, Germany Police say a woman was stopped at Munich airport after baggage control handlers found the skeleton of her brother sealed in a plastic bag in her luggage.

The 62-year-old woman and her 63-year-old friend, who both live in Italy, were hauled in by airport police Tuesday after a scan of the bag showed a human skull and other bones.

The women were travelling to Italy from Brazil.

It turned out that the woman was trying to fulfil the last wish of her brother who died 11 years ago in Sao Paulo, Brazil to be buried in Italy.

The travellers produced the appropriate papers from Brazilian authorities for the unusual transport, and were allowed to carry on their way to Naples bones and all.
