Advertising: Wanted - one female corpse

The Peruvian government has used a small businesses website to offer $636 for a woman's corpse.

The ad was placed by the science and health department of the National University of Cajamarca, which wants a body for medical students to study.

University official Jose Nino told AFP the offer to buy a body was mistakenly placed openly on the website, "due to a technical error".
