Scientists claim to find alien wreckage
Russian scientists claim to have discovered the wreck of an alien craft at the site of an unexplained explosion in Siberia almost a hundred years ago.
They say they found the remains of an extra-terrestrial device that allegedly crashed near the Tunguska river in Siberia in 1908.
The Interfax news agency reports that the scientists were working for the Tunguska space phenomenon public state fund.
They also claim to have discovered a 50kg rock which they have sent to the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk for analysis.
The Tunguska blast, in a desolate part of Siberia, remains one of the 20th century's biggest scientific mysteries.
On June 30, 1908, what is widely believed to be a meteorite exploded a few kilometres above the Tunguska river, in a blast that devastated over 2,000 square kilometres of forest.
