15 Female Fetuses Found In Indian Garbage Dump

PATNA (AFP) -- Fifteen female foetuses have been found in jars left on a rubbish dump, Indian police said Monday, days after census data showed the ratio of girls to boys is at the nation's lowest level since 1947.

The foetuses were recovered Sunday from a dump near a private nursing home in Kishanganj town in the impoverished eastern Indian state of Bihar after they were spotted by children playing cricket, according to police.
