Mongolian dinosaur returns to hero's welcome

Giant fossil at centre of custody row with US becomes star attraction in Ulan Bator museum.

    A new exhibit at Mongolia's most popular museum has attracted more than a year's worth of visitors in just five days.

    The star attraction is 70 million years old and has just been at the centre of a custody battle with the United States.

    Mongolia, where one in five dinosaurs of the world were found, is now trying to preserve its rich fossil heritage more consciously.
