True or hoax? Body of 'dead alien' found in frozen wastes of Siberia

London, April 20: Two walkers have claimed to have found a dead body of an alien in frozen wastes of Siberia and posted the video on the Internet.

On its side with its mouth slightly agape, the slender, badly-damage body lies half-buried in snow close to Irkutsk, Russia.

The area is a known UFO hotspot and video of the alien's corpse has become a massive worldwide hit with hundreds of thousands of followers after being posted on the Internet.

The corpse of the badly-damaged creature which resembles ET is of the right leg is missing and there are deep holes for eyes and a mouth in a skull-like head.

UFO fans believe the body could have been left behind by ET visitors after an accident, or missed by Russian military alien experts clearing up after a crash.

It follows reports of a UFO hurtling towards Earth in the nearby Irkutsk region of Siberia one month ago.

"We couldn't believe it when we saw it. And what was spooky is that there was no sign of the spaceship. Perhaps that was taken away and the body overlooked," the Daily Mail quoted Igor Molovic, one of the pair that uploaded the video, as saying.

Nearly 700,000 people have now seen the clip within a few days.

Cynics, however, claim the video is a fake using a carefully staged model for the alien's body.
