(Newser) – A Chinese airline passenger en route to Italy was busted in Bucharest after a body part was found in his luggage, apparently tucked away amid the underwear and shirts. A portion of a "human lower limb" was discovered during a security check, reports the Telegraph. "The fragment of a human body was discovered during the first security check at the airport, and the owner of the bag was held on the spot," said a security spokesman. All "possible leads" are being examined, said an investigator. Several gruesome murders of Chinese nationals were reported in Romania in the '90s. The (complete) bodies of four Chinese men were found inside suitcases in one instance.
