THE SUN – WILL STEWART
TWENTY-SEVEN pairs of severed human hands have been found mysteriously washed up on an ice-covered island in Russia.
The shocking discovery was made close to the city of Khabarovsk in the Far East of Siberia, close to the border with China.
All but one of the 54 hands were in a bag.
Another – spotted first by a local – was lying separately on a snow-covered island in the Amur River around 18 miles downstream from the Russian frontier with China.
The sinister finds were laid out in the snow for a police picture.
They were located at a popular fishing spot, but locals said they had seen nothing suspicious.
